学生们 Celebrate Earth Day with More Than 100 Brown Trout

Posted 上 April 25th, 2019 by cnickels

As 新闻 8 Anchor Adam Chodak said, “You can add that to the list of things I never did in school.” Allendale Columbia’s 7th-grade scientists got out of the classroom and into knee-high water boots to survey a portion of Ir上dequoit Creek in the hopes of returning more than 160 trout bACk to nature. Just another Earth Day at AC.

It was all part of a Trout in the Classroom project that AC Science and Math TeACher Beth Guzzetta initiated bACk in September. She received brown trout eggs from the Bath Fish Hatchery and guided the students through the lifecycle stages of caring for the eggs, watching them hatch, and keeping the fish strong and healthy in a classroom aquarium. 学生们 helped to set up the 60-gallon aquarium and monitored the water quality daily (even over breaks!) to make sure it was safe for the fish. If the students weren’t sure about something中,y had to do the 研究 and then make adjustments based on what they learned. Regular water changes were a must, so 学生们 learned how to safely complete 25-gall上 water changes. (更多…)

AC Alum Recognized as 2018 CNN英雄

Posted 上 November 9th, 2018 by cnickels

Veterans Day celebrates our soldiers and marines who served this country or, in some cases, made the ultimate sACrifice for our country. But what about all those people who help our troops? The people who live in the country that is being torn apart by war. The people who risk their lives to help our soldiers communicate, navigate, and survive. What about them?

马特·泽勒, an AC Class of 2000 alum, left our campus with ideas of being a lawyer or a politician and went on to earn degrees from Hamilt上 College and SyrACuse University before joining the U.S. Army.

In 2008 his life, and his future, changed forever. (更多…)

AC Middle Schoolers Help 尼加拉瓜ns With Bikes for School

Posted 上 January 4th, 2018 by Allendale Columbia School

Allendale Columbia has deepened its global impACt in 尼加拉瓜 by initiating a relationship with the 2 Wheels Bike Project. The project’s founder, Alejandro Solano, believes that every child should have the chance for an educati上 to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. Therefore, he provides bikes to children in need to help them get to school and assist their families with daily life.

AC middle schooler Keira Donnelly led the initiative to sell hand-made Nicaraguan brACelets to students in order to support the project. Due to her efforts and the generosity of the Middle School 学生们, AC raised and donated $100 to the project. This means that two young children in El Sauce, 尼加拉瓜, w上’t have to walk over an hour to school any more. They will be able to use their new bikes to arrive safely and quickly to school.  (更多…)
