(WHAM) - Upperclassmen at Allendale-Columbia were paired with elementary school buddies for the day Wednesday.

Blue/White Day is a chance for the older students to mentor and support the younger kids.

School officials say it helps to create a family-like bond across the student body.

The school started the tradition more than 100 years ago.
