A Letter from Our Head of School
All Saints Families,
Thank you to everyone: students, faculty, staff and parents for a great start to our school year. It has been fast and furious, and we are just beginning what we anticipate to be another successful, fun and exciting year at All Saints.
Summer break is one of the busiest times for school administrators as it provides time to really dig in and evaluate all of our programs and protocols. We review the year and look for areas of improvement in all of our academic offerings, extracurricular activities, daily school life, logistics, operations and the list goes on. School security and the safety of our students, faculty, staff and families are at the top of our list every summer. When we left for summer break last May we were all saddened by the events at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde which undoubtedly created an extra sense of urgency for schools to evaluate and improve school safety.
We are elated to share with all in our community that recently we received a tremendous financial gift from current All Saints grandparents, Reverend Pat and Bill Russell, that will allow us to improve campus safety by installing a protective layer to all of the glass doors and windows on the ground-floor and all of the accessible second story glass doors and windows at our school. The protective coating will prohibit shattering and deter the opportunity for anyone to gain unauthorized entry into the school by breaking or shooting out the glass. This was a project that had been evaluated in the past but was financially out of reach. The project was presented to the Board of Trustees in our August meeting and discussions ensued on how we could finance the project. Following Rev. Pat’s attendance at the meeting, she and Bill communicated to me that they felt strongly about the project and wanted to donate the necessary funds. Plans are underway to install the protective glass film in the next few weeks. Please join me in expressing appreciation to the Russells. Throughout the long history of All Saints, this family has always been a pillar of support and we are so appreciative and humbled by their generosity and care for our community.
We have also enhanced safety by adding an electronic entry into the main entrance of the school. Waiting a brief moment to be “buzzed” into the front office is a small price to pay for helping lessen the chance of unauthorized entry by anyone. Our faculty and staff recently engaged in multiple presentations by the Lubbock Police Department (LPD) on active-shooter training and in-depth instruction on our Standard Response Protocol (SRP) during our week of professional development prior to the start of school. We have also improved and increased SRP education for students by
taking extra time these first few weeks of school to teach and practice our school safety procedures. Our focus with the students has been on the “why” we take time to learn. The faculty and staff along with the assistance of our outstanding group of LPD Safety Resource Officers (SRO) have done an admirable job of teaching students without creating an environment of fear or uncertainty. Our goal is to provide safety education while maintaining a positive classroom environment and a strong sense of community.
The events over the past few years involving tragic situations in schools are certainly not something we would have ever imagined we would live with on a daily basis. At All Saints, we will continue to move forward and be vigilant in our efforts to constantly prepare, evaluate and improve safety. We are all fortunate to be here supported by the Board of Trustees and incredibly generous people like Pat and Bill Russell who are all committed to the safety of our entire community. Keeping our school safe is a shared responsibility, and I thank everyone for their commitment.
With Patriot Pride,
*All Patriot families are invited to attend the Parade, Pep Rally and Volleyball games!
HOCO MUM AND GARTER ORDERS DUE SEPTEMBER 16
An All Saints student has been recently recognized by the Nancy Anderson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Senior Lauren Bayouth was awarded the DAR 2023 Good Citizen of the Year Award and will receive a scholarship. The Award is intended to encourage and reward the qualities of good citizenship. It recognizes and rewards high school seniors who possess the qualities of dependability, service, leadership, and patriotism in their homes, schools, and communities
“From the time I arrived at the high school, I could see Ms. Bayouth’s character was second to none. She is most deserving of this award and is a model All Saints Student,” High School Division Head Colin Madding said. “We are proud of her for this achievement and all of her accomplishments.”
Bayouth is very active on and off campus. She is a member of the All Saints volleyball, girls basketball, and track teams as well as serves as a National Honor Society officer. Outside of school she volunteers with the National Charity League and plays on club volleyball and basketball teams.
She is a recipient of the Head of School Honor Roll throughout her high school years as well as receiving TAPPS Academic All State Awards and TAPPS Athletic Awards for basketball, track, and volleyball, which includes being listed on the TAPPS All State Team for volleyball. She has been recognized locally by Lone Star Athlete and Athlete of the Week as being one of the most outstanding volleyball and basketball players on the South Plains.
Bayouth is undecided about where she wants to attend college, but she is sure she wants to major in kinesiology with plans to attend graduate school to earn a Physical Therapy doctorate.
She began All Saints 15 years ago in Preschool. Her parents are Dr. Charles Bayouth, and Debbie and Kyle Jones. Siblings Jacob, Joseph, and Katie Bayouth are All Saints alumni. She has two step-siblings, Karlee and Karson Jones.
“Lauren Bayouth is quite simply one of the most outstanding young ladies that I have worked with in 42 years of education” High School Counselor Gwen Belk said. “Her impeccable character, her strong work ethic and her winning personality are what makes Lauren special.”

Patriots Learn Responsibility
MS Coaches Corner
Middle School Cross Country is off to a great start. We ran our first meet on August 27th at Lubbock Christian University.
Our Middle School girls placed seventh overall. They were led by Rebecca Richmond and Kayci Cave whose relay team placed 13th. With Londyn Burkholder and Zoey Scranton in 27th Place. Other strong showings included Ellery Lowe and Aaryn Jae Ross in 42nd place, Sophia Scioli and Presley Scolaro in 48th place and Amelia Anderson and Kenedee Valdez took 51st place.
Our MS Boys had a team finish of 3rd place.
Sonne Galvan and Alex Lopez lead the boy’s team with a 7th place finish. Jake Wischmeyer and Knox Rushing ran well and finished 21st with Jaden Fuller and Gurvir Gill finishing 42nd and the team composed of West Osborne and Raphael Codding placed 43rd overall.
The MS cross country team will be back in action this weekend at Lubbock Christian University again.
Middle School Football is off and running. The Patriots fell short in the first contest of the season but showed signs of improvement as the game progressed. With two weeks before our next game, we have plenty of time to build on that improvement. The players are working hard and would love for everyone to come and see our first home game of the season on September 22 against Kingdom Prep.
Middle School volleyball is off to a great start. The enthusiasm and excitement of the girls is contagious. Both Seventh and Eighth Grade teams have already played four matches and their skills improve with every game. We have the home court advantage this week with Lubbock Christian here on Thursday, September 8 and All Saints will be hosting a Seventh and Eighth Grade volleyball tournament this weekend. We would love to see a huge showing of fans to cheer on the girls. This is going to be an amazing season.
High School Coaches Corner
High School Cross Country
Our High School cross country team opened up their season with the Rust Buster Relays at Lubbock Christian University.
The HS boys relay team of Lee Taylor and Diego Cervera placed 2nd overall. Due to the mass confusion at the finish line, we were not able to obtain team results.
Senior Lee Taylor traveled to San Antonio last weekend to represent All Saints at the FEAST Patriot 5A/6A large school race where he had a 5K personal best with a time of 15.33.
Congratulations to all of our runners on a great start to the season. The team will be back at Lubbock Christian this weekend.
High School Volleyball
The 2022 volleyball season has started off at full speed. We are a month into the season. Our theme for this year is “Pursue”. Pursue the Lord first and foremost. Secondly, pursue the best version of ourselves that we can be. Lastly, pursue every play, every day. Both our Varsity and JV teams have done that. Varsity has won one tournament, won a Diamond bracket at another tournament, and placed 2nd at their third tournament with a record of 21-4-1 so far. JV has also competed well and has embraced the theme this year with their play on and off the court.
Off Season Basketball
Coach Chapman recently held a team building day at his home for the off season basketball team.
At the center of all the fun was a corn hole competition, Coach Smith and Coach Chapman walked away with first and second place bragging rights! Not far behind were Anson Proffit and Caleb Mead!
It was a great day with the players and lots of fun for everyone. Thank you to Coach Chapman for opening your home to our Patriot student athletes.
