All Saints finished first in the elementary division with 515 points and first in the middle school division with 628 points. With this great showing, All Saints will have 37 students representing the school in 54 contests at the state meet at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth on Saturday, May 6. The PSIA district meet could not have been successful without the tremendous support of the All Saints community. In order to hold this event, we needed to provide more than one hundred volunteers to act as contest directors, judges, and graders. We also provided a concession stand throughout the day for guests as well as a hospitality room for volunteers. Thank you once again to all the teachers, parents, and high school students who took time on Saturday to help run this wonderful event. Patriot volunteers made all of the difference in the success of the district meet! We look forward to the state competition at TCU in May!
