A Letter from our Head of School

All Saints Family,

I hope everyone is well and looking forward to Spring Break.  Certain school holidays come at the perfect time and Spring Break is always one of those well-timed breaks before we hit the home stretch of the school year.  On behalf of all of the students, faculty and staff at All Saints we want to extend a huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated and donated during our annual Day of Giving on February 10th.   Also special appreciation to our anonymous donor with their contributing matching gift, as well as Celeste Thompson and her team in the advancement office.  It is always amazing to see the true generosity of the All Saints community.

I also wanted to update everyone on our ongoing enrollment for the 2023-24 school year.  Thank you to everyone who hosted a grade-level meeting in their home and all of the parents who attended.  Our participation was excellent, and the results certainly bear that out as we are currently more than 80% re-enrolled for next year.  This is a 49% increase over the same time period from last year’s re-enrollment. Open enrollment for new families began on March 1st, and we have enrolled 19 new students in the first week.  We anticipate many more new students enrolling in the coming weeks as interest in All Saints is strong.  Abby Scioli and Lisa Britton in the admissions office are busy with new applicants meetings, tours and scheduling shadow days.  

Thank you to everyone for taking time to re-enroll online.  It is an incredible help to all of us in planning and staffing for next year.  The earlier we have a clear picture of our staffing needs the sooner we can lock in plans and begin preparations for next year which only makes for a better school experience for the students, teachers and families.  If you have not re-enrolled yet please take the time to do so.  We are very close to waiting lists in multiple grades.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Spring Break.  Thank you for being an All Saints Patriot.

With Patriot Pride, 

Robert Brashear

Cervera Earns National Merit Finalist

Senior Diego Cervera’s National Merit Semifinalist status score previously announced in September has been announced now as advancing into National Merit Finalist status. In addition, Cervera was named a National Hispanic Scholar in September.

Cervera is All Saints’ first National Merit Finalist, but he is not the first All Saints student to earn National Merit Scholar Recognition. Since 2018, All Saints has been home to 12 National Merit Scholars.

“We are excited and proud of Diego. He exemplifies the excellence and well-roundedness that we strive for in all of our students at All Saints,” Head of School Robert Brashear said. “Diego radiates excellence not only academically, but in all of his athletic and extracurricular activities. His character and work ethic are impressive and he represents himself, his family and All Saints at a high level. The Patriot family is proud of Diego!”

Approximately 15,000 Semifinalists are chosen as Finalists based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference. The students are selected based on their academic records, the school’s curriculum and grading system, PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score, the high school official’s written recommendation, information about the students’ activities and leadership, and each Finalist’s own written essay.

Cervera’s Finalist status makes him eligible to receive one of the 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $30 million.

“National Merit Finalist Diego Roberto Cervera is an extraordinary young man. We have been so blessed to have him attend school at All Saints,” High School Counselor Gwen Belk said. “Diego is academically and athletically gifted and has a wonderful personality and a marvelous sense of humor. I have no doubt that he will be successful in all of his future endeavors.”

Belk also attributes Cervera’s success to his parents, “Dr. Aurelio and Mrs. Gabriela Cervera are also a huge part of Diego’s success. They have been a constant source of support and encouragement for Diego and for All Saints Episcopal School.”

Cervera began his tenure at All Saints in the third grade. His brothers, Octavio and Sebastian are currently freshmen at All Saints.

“As parents, we feel All Saints has offered Diego a challenging curriculum, yet a fun environment,” Cervera’s mother, Mrs. Gabriela Cervera, said. “All Saints offered him the possibility to take AP classes, exposure to multiple academic and sports competitions, as well as extracurricular activities. Since Diego came to All Saints when he was eight years old, he felt very welcome and part of the community. He has made great friendships that will last a lifetime.”

While attending high school he has been a member of the Varsity Tennis and Cross Country teams and earned State Champion titles in both. In Cross Country he is a member of the teams that placed as TAPPS 2A State Runner Up in 2020 and 2021. In Tennis, he won the 2022 TAPPS 2A Singles State Championship and led his team to win the 2022 Fall TAPPS 2A State Team Tennis Championship; led the team to a record of 18-5 in the 2021 fall season, and earned two second place finishes at TAPPS Team State in 2020 and 2021. He is also a member of the two-time TAPPS 2A State Academics Championship team, Chemistry Club, National Honor Society, Robotics Team, and Band in which he plays snare/bass drum, violin, and piano. Cervera was awarded the 2021 AP Scholar with Distinction Award as well as receiving the Head of School Honor Roll each year of high school. He has received numerous academic awards through TAPPS and UIL contests.

“I am very thankful to all my teachers for my academic preparation. Particularly PSAT classes taught by Mrs. Martin and Mrs. Durham were very helpful,” Cervera said. “I learned important concepts and applications. Mrs. Ryan’s practice tests were also very helpful in preparing for SAT tests.”

“I would highly recommend All Saints to other teens. I feel All Saints challenging curriculum and small class sizes led to a lot of engaging conversations and activities that ultimately helped me in my academic preparation,” he said.

After school, Cervera plans to study biochemistry and pursue a career in medicine.



Conover and Needham Chosen to Perform at TAPPS Convention

Each year, select students are chosen from the hundreds of actors that perform at the TAPPS One-Act Play State Championships to participate in a theatre production at the annual TAPPS convention in Waco. This year, two All Saints students, Chloe Conover and Olivia Needham, were chosen for inclusion.

“I am very proud of these students and this achievement,” says Director of Fine Arts Shane Strawbridge. “They both worked very hard and pushed outside of their comfort zone for this year’s performance of Peter and the Starcatcher. Chloe’s Black Stache and Olivia’s Peter Pan were some of the best work I have seen from either of these fine actors.”

At the state meet in November, Chloe and Olivia were both named to the All-Star Cast. At the district meet in October, Olivia was again named to the All Star Cast and Chloe was named Best Actress. If the students choose to accept the invitation to perform, they will travel to Waco in early June.

Guerra Chosen as CASP Studio G Resident Artist and Photographer

All Saints Art Teacher Michelle Guerra has been chosen as a CASP Studio G Resident Artist and Photographer. Mrs. Guerra graduated with a Bachelors in Art Education in 2015. She has experience in various media including clay, jewelry, mixed media, drawing, and painting.

“I started playing around with photography at 18 years old, and—during the time of schooling and work—I have only continued to grow my skills and develop a confidence in my style of art,” says Guerra. “My work is dark, moody, and romantic, and I set myself to be different from others. I love to work with conceptual ideas and gravitate towards fine art portraits.”

Mrs. Guerra’s work can be seen monthly at First Friday Art Trail and other events with the Charles Adams Studio Project or on Instagram


Pig Day

The farm unit in PLC culminated with Pig Day Festivities! Preschool had a pig themed day from start to finish while Pre-Kindergarten made pig shirts and raced their mechanical pigs for the first time! 


Dr. Seuss Week

“Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It is fun to have fun. But you have to know how.” – The Cat in The Hat by Dr. Seuss 
Kindergarten read a book by Dr. Seuss each day last week. Beyond the books, Mrs. Scranton and Mrs. Burkholder cooked green eggs and ham. Students charted their opinion and it’s safe to say, the green eggs and ham were a hit!

Pre-First Update

Pre-First had a fabulous Pig Day and took the opportunity to show Mrs. Hernandez how much she is appreciated. They love her and we love Pre-First! 

Imaginary Trip to Washington D.C.

Hall of Presidents

Students portraying 35 United States presidents were showcased on February 24 during the school’s 39th Annual Hall of Presidents Program.

The second-grade class concluded their study of the United States presidency that included research in the school library, writing a biography and then reciting that biography in costume to an audience of approximately 200. Students also recited by memory all 46 presidents in order.

The Hall of Presidents Program is a highlight of the second grade and is a highly-anticipated event by the entire All Saints Community.

Third Grade Business Expo

Fourth Grade Safety Patrol

Did you know? Fourth grade students serve as the school’s safety patrol. These kids arrive at school early to greet students with a smile. Safety Patrol is a great reminder that community service can happen anywhere.

Thank you fourth grade students!

Lower School Spelling Bee

Third and fourth graders participated in the Lower School Spelling Bee on February 14th. Congratulations to the thirty-five students who braved the stage. Benefits of a spelling bee include the building of cognitive skills and confidence in public speaking.

Coaches Corner


This season has begun roaring out the gates with junior high as we competed in our first tournament in early February at Plainview.  In Plainview, the kids competed against 3 Ector county public schools along with Seminole, and Plainview. We came away with 1st and 2nd place in boys’ doubles as well as a 2nd place finish in boys’ singles. In Levelland, we competed against only 4a middle schools and our 7th grade athletes won the tournament!  We also had a 1st and 4th place finish in boys singles with a 1st place in boys doubles for the 8th graders. 
The rest of our MS athletes have played Christ the King and SPCHEA (South Plains Christian Homeschool Education Association) in two very positive outings where we would win the majority of our matches as well as give our 6th graders their first opportunity to compete.
Coach Tucker Richolson 


The middle school track had its first track meet last Thursday at Lubbock Christian. They competed against 17 schools in the Lubbock, Midland and Amarillo areas. With many schools from the 3A and 4A classifications. 
I was very proud of all the kids. With very tough competition, some of our athletes walked away with medals. The season looks very promising. Our next meet will be on March 23rd when we come back from spring break.

It was a fun night for all of us! The funds raised by the evening will be used to purchase books for prison lobbies so children who visit their parents can have a reading experience with their own parents. Please be on the lookout for next year’s Parents’ Night Out Event!
