A Letter from our Head of School

All Saints Community,

I hope everyone is well and having a great 2023.  This Friday, February 10th will be the annual All Saints’ Day of Giving.  We are so fortunate to have a generous member of the All Saints community offer a matching donation of $30,000 if $30,000 is contributed on the 10th.  Funds raised from the Day of Giving will go into the operations budget along with annual fund donations, Legacy donations and revenue from our spring fun run.  

This will be our third Day of Giving at All Saints and each year has been fantastic.  The amount to attain the matching gift was exceeded each year as well as the overall total.  It has been and certainly will continue to be an exciting and humbling day as we all come together as a community for our school.  Anyone can contribute and any amount is appreciated.  I must say how proud I am of our faculty and staff who have all contributed to our annual fund and/or will contribute on the Day of Giving.  When all of the people that work at All Saints are passionate enough to give back financially at any amount it speaks volumes about our culture and the type of passionate, committed and loving people who teach our children. To our faculty and staff, thank you and what an incredible example you are to the All Saints community.  

Friday, February 10th is also the first day of online re-enrollment for current families.  A huge thank you to everyone who has hosted and attended our grade-level re-enrollment meetings.  It is always enjoyable to get together to learn about “the next year,” and we are so appreciative of the support and constructive feedback that we get from our parents.  Re-enrollment for returning students will be open from February 10th through February 28th.  Open enrollment for the new students will begin on March 1st.  It is important that everyone re-enrolls quickly as planning for next year including scheduling, staffing and exciting new and returning offerings are already in process. Be on the lookout for an email communication from the admissions office with instructions for online re-enrollment.

It is an exciting time at All Saints and it is made even more special because of the passionate involvement of our community.  Thank you, and it is awesome to be a part of the Patriot Family.

With Patriot Pride,

Robert Brashear
Head of School


Twice the Love on February 10th

Love is in the air at All Saints this week as we hold the third annual Day of Giving.  Everyone is encouraged to share a little love with our school by making a donation.   All gifts will be matched up to $30,000 by a generous family who wants to encourage our community by offering this special incentive.  Giving is easy by using the ” text to give”  number provided.  If you prefer to pay by check, it’s fine to drop a donation by the school this week before dismissal on Friday, Feb. 10th. Your gifts support the programs and people who make our school great, so join together with parents, grandparents, alumni, and faculty and give from the heart. 💖

Reenrollment Time is Here!

Thank you to parents who have attended grade level meetings thus far. It is not lost on the admissions team that your time is valuable and we appreciate your attendance and questions. To Rachel and Robert Scranton, Emie and Marcus Young, Bekah and Cooper Phillips, Alex and Arthur Hernandez, Camie and Matthew Wade, Megan and Christopher Halbrooks, Becca and Michael Moss, Katlyn and Brett Longley, Teresa and Alejandro Verdugo and Wendy and Charles Needham  – thank you for opening your homes to our school family!
Meetings will wrap up this week and reenrollment officially opens this Friday, February 10th! Please make sure to check your email for the reenrollment link and instructions. We are excited to put this process in motion as it will allow us to better plan for the 2023/2024 school year. Reenrollment is the time that is set aside for current students to let the school know their plans for the following year. Accurate reenrollment numbers make for better decisions related to facilities, curriculum, class sections and staffing needs.
As a reminder, only students that have submitted their reenrollment will be able to sign up, try out or plan for clubs, organizations, fine arts and athletics. Many of these sign ups take place in the spring so don’t miss the opportunity.
A $350 enrollment fee will be charged for each student. This fee will be reflected on April’s tuition statement. If you have any questions or need to make changes to the billing of this charge, please contact Dana McNeice.

First Ever Speech and Debate Tournament, Success✔

The defending state champion All Saints Speech and Debate team recently hosted a tournament on campus. This proved to be one of the largest events that All Saints has ever sponsored. Twenty schools with around 170 students came ready to compete. Not only did the tournament run on time, but it was a huge success. The entire school got involved. Mrs. Guerra’s K-4th grade art classes created welcome signs, the Kindergarten class, middle school robotics, and Sara Carothers, our amazing senior artist, all designed specialty awards. We also had NJHS, Mrs. Skinner, and Mrs. Hutchinson in the kitchen, and over seventy volunteers working the tournament. It was an all-hands-on-deck kind of day at All Saints.
Mr. Seymore would like to personally thank all of the people who volunteered, cooked, cleaned, or judged to help make this possible. This was a huge step for the Patriot Speech and Debate team.


Join the All Saints Parent Group

Parent Group is looking for interested parents to join us in the 2023-24 school year. It’s a wonderful way to be involved at All Saints and support our Patriots! Please email Teresa Verdugo at terereffreger@gmail.com for more information.

Pig Day - A Beloved All Saints Tradition


Conover Signs to Play D1 Volleyball

Chloe Conover Signs to Play D1 Volleyball

Earlier this week, Chloe Conover officially signed her letter of intent to play D1 Volleyball for the Bethune Cookman Wildcats in Daytona Beach, Florida.

“I credit all my coaches and teammates for always pushing me to be the best I can be,” Conover said. “They always compete with me and make me want to do better. My teachers have always been so supportive too.”

“My favorite memories of volleyball at All Saints are spending time with the girls and coaches, especially our mosh pits in the locker room before games,” Conover said. 

All Saints Varsity Volleyball Coach Levi Savage has coached Conover all four years as a member of his varsity team.  “Chloe has continually shown exponential growth in each year of her high school career. She has shown growth in her volleyball game but more importantly growth as a person,” Savage said.

“I am positive that Bethune Cookman will be a better university once Chloe is on their campus. I am looking forward to seeing her continue to grow and push boundaries in the next chapter of her life,” Savage said.

Conover has been a starting member of the school’s Varsity Volleyball team all four years of high school playing the Right Side position.  She has received numerous district, area, and state awards during each of her seasons including the Texas Association of Private and Parochial School’s (TAPPS) 2A First team All State, Academic All state, District MVP, USA Juniors Volleyball Female Honoree, and Hub City Preps Spark Off the Bench. She was a starting player in 2021 when the Patriots won the TAPPS 2A State Volleyball Championship.

Conover has participated in numerous organizations at All Saints including Varsity Basketball, Varsity Track, Varsity Cheer, Varsity Dance, Varsity Theatre, and National Honor Society. In addition to winning awards for volleyball she has also won awards for TAPPS District and State Track, TAPPS State Dance, TAPPS District and State Best Actress, and the 2021 TAPPS 2A State One Act Play Championship.

In addition to her collegiate scholarship, Conover is also receiving a Presidential Scholarship from Bethune Cookman. She plans to major in Elementary Education.

Conover is the daughter of Susan and Jay Conover.  She has attended All Saints since 2008 when she enrolled as a preschool student.  Congratulations to Chloe!  Your Patriot family is proud of you.

The middle school season came to an end this past weekend and the girls team finished with a strong showing in the district tournament. The 8th grade girls team finished with a record of 15-5 and a 3rd place finish in the WTCAA District Tournament! These young ladies had an amazing season while taking on the challenge of increased competition. Every player showed great competitiveness and improved throughout the year. The coaching staff is very proud of these Patriots!

MS Boys Basketball

The middle school boys basketball team finished their season last week.  They finished the WTCAA tournament with a win over Sharp Academy and two close losses to Christ the King and Kingdom Prep respectively.  The boys improved so much over the course of the year and we are looking forward to seeing what the Spring seasons and next year will bring.
