Last night the Chula Vista Elementary School District board announced that Mrs. Orr will be the new Prinicpal at McMillin Elementary. We all join in celebrating with Mrs. Orr on this well deserved accomplishment. Of course, McMillin’s gain is our loss and we will take the opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for Mrs. Orr for her tremendously effective work here in the Camarena commnity. Congratulations and Best wishes Mrs. Orr. You will be missed.
