This year our children headed off to Coop Elementary School from Santa Maria’s Bonita House Campus, some attending school for the first time ever and all attending a brand-new school. Bonita House was buzzing with excitement and nerves as our families prepared for this special day.
Getting an entire community ready to start a new school year takes a community of helpers. We are grateful for the many hands that made sure the kids from Santa Maria had all the supplies and uniforms needed to start a new school year. This community included Team Maldonado, Armani Corvette Club, Dr. Paula Miller, the Republican Joint Judicial Campaign, and the Top Ladies of Distinction. In addition, the Top Ladies of Distinction, a service organization dedicated to transforming lives and strengthening families and communities, provided school supplies and a fun Back to School Bash. The Ladies and their husbands fondly referred to as Lords, acted as personal shoppers assisting families in navigating school supply lists and ever-changing clothing sizes to ensure each child had exactly what they needed.
