A Letter from Our Head of School

All Saints Family,

I hope all is well, and that everyone is finding balance with all of the fall activities going on at All Saints and in the community.  I want to thank all of our volunteers, cheerleaders, athletic teams, coaches, faculty and staff who made for a great homecoming week.  The “Top Gun” theme was great fun and the best part of the week was our students and their eagerness to dress the part every day and jump into the spirit of homecoming.  As far as school goes the students and teachers have settled in nicely and with the healthy return of Chaplain Paige everything seems to be running on a “normal” track if there is such a thing in the daily life of a thriving school. 

Some may be wondering why fall and winter breaks were extended an extra day for students this year.  We did so in order to add additional professional development days for faculty and staff.  Among our greatest assets at All Saints are our wonderful teachers, coaches and staff who make the magic happen for our children every day.  Increased professional development opportunities are at the top of the list from faculty feedback every year, so the extra days were an opportunity for faculty to come together, learn together and to continue to improve together.  We are excited that we have increased the professional development days from three to 10 this year.  

Last Thursday we implemented a new school-wide safety and security alert system that faculty and staff may access through their cell phones, ipads and laptops should we ever need to activate our Standard Response Protocol (SRP).  The SRP unifies and simplifies our school response for any situation that might arise at school from an unwanted dog on the playground, weather event, fire or any other type of security event we could experience.  We are excited to add the Raptor Alert piece to our safety and security tool kit and thankful to have the day to implement the system and practice with our faculty and staff.  Future professional development days for staff will include topics such as continued focus on improving and aligning academic curriculum, social and emotional training to better assist students and families, continued use and improvement of technology, and a year-long faculty/staff book study focus on the internal and external communications of independent schools.  

The Vision Statement for All Saints reads as: We strive to create life-long learners with the skills to pursue excellence and lead in an ever-changing society.  We are fortunate to be surrounded by faculty and staff who are committed to life-long learning as we all work to constantly pursue excellence and discover the best versions of ourselves every day at All Saints.   

I look forward to seeing everyone gather on Friday for Grandparents and Special Friends Day.

Students and teachers have spent a great deal of time on preparations for this day and our desire is for every student to be present to take part in the activities that are planned.  

With Patriot Pride,

Robert Brashear   


This annual event provides the opportunity for our students to share their All Saints experiences with grandparents, other relatives, or special family friends. Remember, Grandparents and Special Friends Day is a dress uniform day for our students and school will dismiss at noon.


Do parents attend? YES! This is a great family event. Parents are encouraged to attend. All parents, grandparents and special friends are invited to join us for coffee in the courtyard beginning at 9:00am. 

What time does the service begin? The worship service begins at 10:00 am. You will want to come early to get the best seat in either Patriot Gym (site of the service) or Kirby Commons. The service is live-streamed on the big screen in Kirby Commons, home of the most comfortable seats on campus! 

May family members/special friends who are unable to attend in person watch remotely?  Yes, there will be viewing opportunities by going directly to our school Facebook account:

What happens during the service? It follows the basic order of our regular Morning Prayer service, and includes much more! Featured are musical offerings from our students and a brief homily from our chaplain.

 My child’s grandparents cannot attend. What should we do?  If your child does not have grandparents who are able to attend the service, families might consider a special friend who could be asked. Perhaps there are special neighbors, godparents, an aunt or uncle who might want to join the fun. In addition, parents are always special at All Saints!

Where do guests park? The school parking lots are available, and overflow parking is also available on the neighborhood streets and behind Kohls. Early arrival is recommended.

Are there any program changes this year? We have moved the coffee reception beginning at 9am to the courtyard. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet the All Saints leadership team and enjoy fellowship with other Patriot families.

If you have additional questions regarding this day, please contact our school office at 806.745.7701 or use the convenient chat box on our school website (found in the lower right hand corner of this screen).  


All Saints Episcopal School is proud to announce that four members of its 2023 graduating class are receiving honors by the College Board’s National Merit Scholar Program for their “Excellence in Academic Achievement” demonstrated by their outstanding performances on the qualifying 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) taken in October 2021.

The four seniors earned six awards cumulatively: one National Merit Semifinalist status, two National Merit Commended Scholar awards, and three National Hispanic Scholar Recognitions. 

Senior Diego Cervera earned National Merit Semifinalist status with the possibility of advancing on to National Merit Finalist status.  In addition, Cervera was named as a National Hispanic Scholar.  Senior Sara Carothers was also named as a National Hispanic Scholar.  She also received the National Merit Commended Scholar Award.  Senior Campbell Howe received the National Merit Commended Scholar Award and senior Abigail Barritt was recognized as a National Merit Hispanic Scholar.

All Saints will administer the 2023 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) October 12 to all students enrolled in grades 8-11.

“We are so very proud of Abigail, Campbell, Diego and Sara for being honored with National Merit status. All four students are truly outstanding young people who represent themselves and their families so well,” Head of School Robert Brashear said. “All of these young people are a shining light at All Saints and true portraits of the type of people and students that we are surrounded by at All Saints.  Congratulations to all of these students, their families and all of the teachers, coaches and mentors who have influenced their success.  Their future is bright, and they will always be looked to for example and guidance.”

As four members of the 18-member Class of 2023 and All Saints’ eighth graduating class, they are members of the elite club of All Saints High School students to earn Scholar status by the College Board in the school’s short ten-year history. A total of eight other All Saints seniors have earned National Merit Scholar recognition since 2018. 

A total of 14 students in the Lubbock area earned recognition from the College Board National Merit Scholar Recognition Program for 2023: four seniors from All Saints; nine seniors from Lubbock High; and one senior from Talkington School for Young Women Leaders.

Congratulations to these hardworking students on this outstanding academic accomplishment. 


Homecoming King Joseph Paone and Queen Lauren Bayouth
Homecoming Court 2022 (From left to right: Kate White, Campbell Howe, Abigail Barritt, Lauren Bayouth, Joseph Paone, Daniel Vermillion, Rowe Osborne, and Curtis Yates

One of the highlights of the 2022 Homecoming Pep Rally on September 26 was the presentation of the Homecoming Court and the Crowning of the King and Queen. Seniors Lauren Bayouth and Joseph Paone were elected by the high school student body as the 2022 Homecoming Queen and King.

Homecoming Princess fourth grade student Elle Stockdale crowned the pair. Her family bid and won the opportunity for Elle to be the Homecoming Princess through the Legacy Auction last December.

Bayouth is very active on and off campus.  She is a member of the All Saints volleyball, 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.

Paone is a member of the Fall tennis, basketball, and track teams.  Aside from a busy athletic schedule, Paone is a member of the Chemistry Club and currently serves as the National Honor Society President. 

Both students have earned Head of School Honor Roll recognition and TAPPS Academic All State honors in their high school years and have both received the Proven Patriot Award for outstanding leadership and character. 

Congratulations to all of our Homecoming Court candidates!  In addition to Lauren and Joseph, the following senior girls and boys were nominated to the court: Kate White, Campbell Howe, Abigail Barritt, Daniel Vermillion, Rowe Osborne and Curtis Yates (listed as shown in the above photo).


There are a lot of volunteers who step up every year to make Homecoming special for our students, staff, alumni and families.  Thank you to each of you for working hard and making this year’s event extra special.

A big shout out to our cheerleading sponsors and their team of volunteers for an amazing Pep Rally and to Mr. Hampton for stepping up and serving as our M.C. once again!  Nice work.

The festivities wrapped up with the high school “Red Carpet” themed Homecoming Dance and the students would like to thank the staff members who gave up part of their weekend to serve as chaperones:  Janet Martin, Colin Madding, Marty Montoya,  Lisa Rozean and Kyle Simons.

Pumpkin Spice everything at your favorite coffee shop and Christmas decorations at Big Box stores – it must be October!  And if those two reminders weren’t enough for you, last week at school, we celebrated the Feast day of Saint Francis and observed our annual blessing of the animals.  These two activities are time honored traditions at All Saints and usher in a very busy month of activity.

Blessings to you all and I hope this issue finds you all well. We embarked this fall with a new chapter in the life of the chaplaincy at All Saints.  Due to the generous, incredible endowment gift announced last fall, I have the honor of now serving as the school’s full time chaplain.  The finishing touches are being put on the new Pastoral Care center off of the library.  The schedule of teaching has been set, and I am blessed to get to work weekly this year with Grades Kindergarten, PreFirst, Fourth and Eighth.

A note of personal thanks:  I was out for most of September recovering from surgery.  I cannot begin to thank everyone for the calls, cards, remembrances, prayers and support.  In addition, thank you to all of the hands who fed us with chapel leadership!  We are a blessed community!

Please let me know how I can best serve YOUR family.  All Saints is more than a school; it is a community.  In times of celebration and need, know that I am here and care.

Also, know that you are welcome to join us any time in person or online for chapel at 8:00am.  God is good!

Peace and blessings,
Chaplain Paige+

Two Juniors Bring "Read Along with Dad" Event to Area Prison

Two junior students recently proved that “sharing a book is caring.”
Calvin Carpenter and Jeye Johnson recently created a meaningful way for All Saints to donate the library books that were no longer going to be housed in the newly-renovated All Saints Library.
The library renovation created an opportunity to remove older, worn, and duplicate books from circulation. According to Librarian Mrs. Karen Gretzler, the marked books would be discarded or donated to the public library.
Carpenter and Johnson thought of another possibility to make the books become even more meaningful to other children after visiting with Carpenter’s father.
“My dad was the previous Superintendent of Windham School District, the state’s prison school system. He shared stories about how incarcerated men wanted opportunities with their children to ‘break the cycle” of poor choices with serious consequences,” Carpenter said. “Sharing a book creates a memory with feelings and emotions. It fosters a love of reading.”
The two junior students created an event – “Read Along with Dad” and took their idea to host an event to donate books to children of incarcerated men in the panhandle area to All Saints Head of School Robert Brasher for approval. Upon Brashear’s approval it was then submitted to the current Superintendent of Windham School District and the Department of Criminal Justice in Huntsville.
Once approved, Mrs. Erica Moore, the regional principal coordinated the event at a unit close to Lubbock. Flyers were distributed announcing the event so prisoners could inform their families about the special visitation event to be held in Plainview at the Formby State Jail. The Read Along with Dad event is unlike any other because the dads are incarcerated in the jail.
Carpenter and Johnson had to complete background checks for security clearance to allow them into the prison. On the day of the event, they arranged the books on tables and greeted the mothers and their children as they entered the visitation room. Each child was able to browse and select a book.
For some, choosing just one book was hard, but not for one little girl. She saw Johnson skimming a book about Barbie and that became the very book she wanted.
“The girl made my day when she took the Barbie book,” Johnson said.
The children were allowed to then take their books into their visitation sessions to read with their fathers. They were also allowed to take the books home with them.
Two visitation sessions occurred that day and over 50 books were adopted into a new family and shared with a father. The remaining books will be distributed among units in the Texas Panhandle area to establish small libraries in the visitation rooms.
Several administrators from the Formby Unit, Windham School District, and the Texas Department of Corrections were there to support and participate in the project.
“This event was very successful and meaningful for the families, and we are hopeful to host another in the spring,” Mrs. Moore said.

National Honor Society Induction Ceremony

Nineteen juniors recently became new members of the school’s Sherry Fewin Chapter of the National Honor Society (NHS) in its eighth formal induction. Members are considered school leaders for their scholastic and leadership merits.

The Sherry Fewin Chapter originated in 2014 with the first group of eligible juniors. NHS was founded in 1921by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP). Today, more than one million students participate throughout the United States and around the world with a commitment to scholarship, service, leadership, and character.

All Saints continues to uphold the standards by serving their community with a variety of service activities and fundraising efforts in addition to requiring its members to maintain academic and character standards. Members participate in the school’s organizations, activities and leadership roles. In addition, NHS hosts several events each year. They will host a community Trunk or Treat on October 30 as well as a spring fundraiser and service project.

Membership is extended to All Saints junior and senior students that maintain a minimum 4.25 GPA and receive faculty approval. In addition, members must uphold the organization’s standards for character, scholarship, leadership, and service.

Juniors Calvin Carpenter, Campbell Carper, Brynlee Dalley, Sofia Dominguez, Luke D’Alise, Joshua Eckert, Rohan Felton, Jacque Hunter, Jeye Johnson, Cooper Locke, Caden Mead, Olivia Needham, Harry Roberts, Reghan Rose, Ella Scolaro, Jameson Seal, Audrey Smith, Arch Underwood, and Matthew Zhang were accepted into membership after reciting the National Honor Society Pledge led by Head of School Robert Brashear.

Officers are seniors Joseph Paone (president), Lauren Bayouth (vice-president), Maddie Matthews (secretary), Daniel Vermillion (treasurer), and Kate White (historian).

Senior members are Abigail Barritt, Lauren Bayouth, Sara Carothers, Natalie Caswell, Diego Cervera, Portia Clary, Chloe Conover, Grady Geihsler, Campbell Howe, Maddie Matthews, Joseph Paone, Emma Steele, Lee Taylor, Daniel Vermillion, Kate White, and Curtis Yates. Mrs. Kelly Beasley is the adviser.

Coach Jones wanted to send out a big shout out to all HS runners that you all represented All Saints well.

Our team is well positioned heading into the state competition where we have earned State Runner Up for two consecutive years.

High School Volleyball

District volleyball has started. The varsity girls are 5-0 halfway through district play. JV girls are battling every game and playing good volleyball. We are striving to exemplify our theme, PURSUE, throughout our daily lives. Both teams are continuing to gain confidence with every game played and striving to give God all the glory.

The All Saints Patriots have had a roller coaster of a season. They have played their most challenging schedule to date, and probably one of the toughest in the state regardless of classification.

This year’s theme was to fight back, and we have done just that. The team played UIL 2023 3A State Championship favorites in Vernon, the Current UIL 2022 3A State Champions in Wall, and a top 4 UIL 3A team in Iowa Park. In addition, we have fought hard but come up short with two 9-10 losses to District Champions Shallowater and a tough Lamesa team. While we were able to pick up strong wins against Brownfield and Levelland.

Coach Richolson believes that our advantage is to push ourselves against these bigger schools. Last week we came back to play Lubbock Trinity which turned out to be a big win with our Patriots going 18-1. Fighting back is our mantra this season and we are proud of this squad.

The team finished up regular season matches last week with a 17-7 win over SPCHEA to put us at 9-9 as we head to the state competition soon where we are a favorite!

Our boy’s golf team wrapped up their season last week at the 2022 TAPPS State Match Play Tournament.
Junior Luke D’Alise got the day started with a hole in one.   There are many professional golfers who never hit a hole in one! Well done, Luke!
The team finished with two wins and two losses in the tournament. They played well against some tough competition with several matches ending in playoff holes. 
A special shout out to Junior Luke D’Alise who recently competed in the All American Tour Autumn Classic.  This contest brings together the best of the best in the world of high school golf. Luke played well and came home with a second place finish.
All Saints swimmer Calista Conklin represented the Patriots at the University of Texas Permian Basin meet on October 2nd.

She competed very well and clocked personal best times in both of her events bringing home some hardware! She placed first in the 100 yard butterfly and fourth in the 50 yard freestyle.

Congratulations to Colista!

Off Season Basketball

Coach Chapman is building a family atmosphere on and off the court for our boy’s basketball team.

They are working hard in open gyms and practice but playing hard too.  Recently the boys had a day of bowling together with lots of laughing and shenanigans.
