Celebrating Blue/White Day at AC

Posted on October 25th, 2017 by klapa

On Wednesday, October 4th, Allendale Columbia rang in the new school year with Blue/White Day to promote school spirit, community and collaboration. Throughout the day, Upper School students were paired with a Lower School “buddy” to spend time with.

To provide a warm welcome to the 2017-2018 school year, the student pairs ate lunch together and participated in a field day. The Upper School students also offered support and mentorship to the younger students.

Started more than 100 years ago, Blue/White Day helps to create a family-like bond across the student body and promotes the AC value of community. Click here to see pictures from this fantastic event!
