One of Allendale Columbia’s more recent beloved traditions is our annual school-wide Heritage Dinner. We value and honor the diversity of people from all backgrounds and traditions; we also love to celebrate different heritage within our own school community. This special event of unity focuses on inclusivity where students and their families come together to share potluck dinners together.
