Opening Days of School at AC!

Posted on September 13th, 2013 by Tony Tepedino

Allendale Columbia School celebrated a remarkable start to the 2013-14 school year.  We welcomed 70 new students and a talented N-12 student body of 375 students from over 15 different countries and 27 school districts.

AC seniors welcomed everyone by teaching the student body how to say “good morning” and “welcome back” in more than 5 different languages at our opening day assembly.  Lower School students are already greeting one another in a different language each day at our family-style lunch. Our Nursery students are right at home in their classroom already after their summer camp experience at AC.    First and second graders are designing their classrooms from scratch.  Seventh graders are getting ready for their Pathfinder Trip to Canada next week.  Ninth graders enjoyed a weekend retreat trip to Camp Stella Maris.  Upper School student leaders had the annual Club Fair with over 30 clubs represented.  Campus is buzzing with activity.  Stay tuned for a great year!
