Youth Service Award
Congratulations to the Middle School NJHS for being honored at the Volunteer Center’s annual Cornucopia Luncheon. They received the Youth Get Involved Award for their volunteer involvement with the Rainbow Room.
NJHS students have made blankets to share with children who visit the Rainbow Room as well as conducting a drive to collect basic necessities. Rainbow Room Coordinator Misti Hill nominated the group for their continued efforts. Current NJHS President Kris Wischmeyer received the award on behalf of the NJHS and dedicated it to former sponsor Annie Bray Cox, who was also in attendance. Other All Saints honorees at the event include former students Bilal Kharrat and Saskia Bergstein (Standard Energy Services), along with former parent Margaret Randle who received the Ray J. Diekemper Lifetime of Service Award.
We are proud to shine a light on the exemplary service of our Patriot family!

A Fond Farewell
Valerie Tucker has been a part of the All Saints family for six years. She oversees all financials and human resources for the school. Her son, Ryan, is a 2020 graduate of All Saints High School.
Valerie has decided to cut back her hours and has taken a part-time job with the Ronald McDonald House in Lubbock. This job will allow her to spend more time with her family.
“We are so grateful to Valerie for her time and effort these past six years at All Saints,” says Head of School Robert Brashear. “She is fantastic at her job, and she has worked tirelessly to greatly improve our accounting and human resources program. She will be missed by all of us, and we are working quickly to fill our controller position.”
PATRIOT LEARNING CENTER

The All Saints Patriot football team finished their season winning two of their last three games. The Patriots began the season as a very inexperienced team with most players playing football for the first time. With hard work, this team improved steadily and was a great representative of All Saints in the community.
Way to go, Patriots!

FINE ARTS NEWS
One Act Play District Champions
For the third consecutive year, All Saints Episcopal School won the Division 3 District 1 One-Act Play Championship. The Patriots are performing Peter and the Starcatcher by Rick Elice, a Tony-Award-winning play that upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). It includes marauding pirates, unwilling comrades, and unlikely heroes playfully exploring the depths of greed and despair, and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.
In addition to the district championship, the Patriots racked up ten individual awards including All Star Crew (Elizabeth Johnson and Emma Steele), Honorable Mention Cast (Erin Brodbeck, Emma Lane, Abigail Barritt, and Hannah Harvey), All Star Cast (Olivia Needham, Brooks Burns, and Lia Liu) and Best Actress (Chloe Conover). The team will compete at the State One-Act Play Championships in Kerrville November 11-12.
“I am very proud of the work that this team has put in on this production,” says Director of Fine Arts Shane Strawbridge. “They are all pushing beyond what is comfortable to elevate the performance to something that carries some real theatre magic. I hope that as many people as possible will be able to see the show before our journey ends.”
A final open rehearsal will be held on Monday, November 7 from 7-9pm in the Kirby Commons. Admission is free, donations are accepted.
All Saints Band Earns 1st Division Rating

The band, led by Directors Charley Cross and Rob Lovett, received a 1st Division rating from the judges, and ranked 3rd place overall in their division. The drumline was ranked 4th overall.
“It was an honor to watch these students perform at the state contest,” says Director of Fine Arts Shane Strawbridge. “I am always impressed with the dedication and talent of our students at All Saints as well as the hard work and untold hours that our directors, Mr. Cross and Mr. Lovett, put in to prepare our students to represent our campus well. I look forward to their next performances.”
The All Saints bands will present a Christmas concert on Wednesday, December 14 in the Kirby Commons.
