Patriot Family,

I hope the Easter break was enjoyable for everyone.  We are excited for the final push to complete a fabulous school year at All Saints. The remaining few weeks of school will be packed with fun and exciting events for our students and families.  With that in mind, we will continue to focus on school safety in the midst of turbulent times for not only schools but anywhere people are gathered.  As a school, we continue to stay abreast of current best practices and standards for school safety. We work intentionally to make it a daily expectation for our faculty, staff, students and families.  Thank you for your continued support of the safety practices and expectations.  We are all a part of the process of keeping All Saints a safe school for everyone.  

There have been times for all of us that checking in at the front office has felt like an inconvenience. But then we watch the horror at The Covenant School in Nashville, a school much like All Saints, and realize that checking in at a single entry point is really not an inconvenience at all.  Internally we expect that all classroom and interior doors are locked at all times and that is sometimes a small inconvenience as well, but again not an inconvenience in the grand scheme of overall school safety.  Unfortunately, as we learn and adapt our processes based on actual events that occur, we begin to see trends develop.  Two of the biggest consistencies found in just about every school safety situation have been accessing the school for a perpetrator and once inside the building unlocked interior doors that allow access to students, faculty, and staff.  

We are fortunate to benefit daily from our two School Resource Officers (SROs) from the Lubbock Police Department who are committed to being a part of and protecting the All Saints community.  Last fall all glass on the lower floors of the school and all entry points were protected with a ballistic coating to prevent shattering and easy entrance into the school.  Additional smaller windows around the school are also in the process of being covered.  An additional Raptor check-in station will also be added in the near future in the area of Jones Gym to make it easier for parents to check in if they are attending morning chapel. 

Thank you again to everyone for doing their part to make All Saints a safe school for our entire community.  Please know that our commitment from the Board, to administration, faculty and staff, students and families is that we will work tirelessly to be intentional and current with our approach to school safety. 

Buckle up and enjoy a busy, exciting and fun finish to a great school year at All Saints.

With Patriot Pride,
Robert Brashear

Ret Taylor '19, Coach Jones, and Lee Taylor '23

Taylor Signs with TTU Cross Country and Track & Field Teams

Lee Taylor signed his letter of intent on March 29th to run for the D1 Texas Tech Red Raiders as a distance runner on the Cross Country and Track and Field Teams.  Lee is the second Patriot and second Taylor to join the TTU XC and Track teams.  Lee’s older brother, Ret, signed with TTU in 2019 and is a current senior distance runner for the Red Raiders.

“My family has supported me every step of the way,” he said “But, my biggest inspiration has been my brother and best friend, Ret. He has always inspired me not only to be a better runner but a better person. He’s my favorite running buddy and has been my biggest supporter.  We cheer each other on and through running we have created a bond that will last a lifetime.” 

“I considered many schools but it came down to TCU, Boston College, Purdue and Texas Tech.  After my official visit to Texas Tech, I knew it was the right choice for me,” Taylor said.

Taylor said he will begin taking summer classes and begin training in June, but official team practices will start in August. “I have been accepted into the Edward E. Whitacre Jr. College of Engineering program and plan to pursue a degree in Industrial Engineering,” he said.

“I’m super excited to have a big team around me at Texas Tech,” Taylor said. “Coming from a small school, it has been a lot of training by myself so I am excited to have people to run with every day.”

All Saints Cross Country and Track Coach Dino Jones has coached Taylor throughout his middle school and high school years at All Saints said, “Lee is one of the hardest working athletes that I have ever been associated with.”

Taylor has been very successful all four high school years while competing in TAPPS competitions.  He was the TAPPS 2A Cross Country State Champion in 2021 and 2022 (Junior and Senior years), TAPPS 2A Cross Country Runner Up in 2020, TAPPS 2A 3200m State Champion in 2022, and TAPPS 2A 1600m State Champion in 2022.

He was also awarded TAPPS 2A First Team All State Cross Country in 2020, 2021, and 2022 and TAPPS 2A Academic All State in 2021 and 2022.

In addition, Taylor was named TAPPS 2A First Team All-State Track and Field in 2020, 2021, 2022 and TAPPS 2A Academic All State in 2021.

“I have had many wonderful memories from my time at All Saints,” Taylor said. “The State Championship competitions are always fun, running the 4X4 relay my junior year was probably my favorite memory.  This race is an opportunity for me to run alongside my teammates and compete with them.  It’s a really fun race to be a part of and I’m grateful for those memories.”

Taylor said. “My most memorable race was my sophomore year at the TAPPS 2A State Cross Country championships. I earned the State Runner Up title and it was that race where everything began to click for me. I realized that running at the collegiate level was something that I really might be able to do. It was definitely a turning point in my running career.”

“The coaching staff at All Saints has been a huge help in getting me to where I am today, especially Coach [Dino] Jones,” Taylor said. “Also, all the teammates who have made those early morning practices fun.”

His next TAPPS 2A competition is the Regional Track Meet April 27 in Dallas with plans to compete in the TAPPS 2A State Track Championship May 5-6 in Waco.

In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Taylor has been a member of the National Honor Society since 2021 and was named to the  Headmaster Honor Roll in 2020, 2021, 2022.  He was also the Chemistry Club Secretary in 2021-2022 and a member of the High School Band.

Taylor is the son of Cindy and Rick Taylor. He has attended All Saints since preschool. His sister, Lilly, is a current All Saints sixth grade student. His brother, Ret, graduated from All Saints in 2019.

Congratulations to GraceAnn Streit '22 who was recently elected to the TTU Student Government!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Third grade is currently reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Ronald Dahl. Upon completion, students will celebrate by watching the movie complete with treats and creating the Third Grade Quilt. The quilt will be featured in the 2024 Kite Day Auction and is a beloved All Saints tradition. 

Fourth Grade

Community service is important in every grade level at All Saints. Our fourth grade students were given the honor of attending the Mayor’s Hunger Heroes Luncheon on April 4th at McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center.  This event recognizes the hard work and dedication of volunteers who have helped feed Lubbock this past year. 

Our fourth grade students and teachers were also honored by Women in Communications – Lubbock Chapter with a 2023 Gold Medal Award. The award was presented this past week at the 38th Annual Celebrity Luncheon.

The fourth grade serves the South Plains Food Bank several times throughout the year.


South Plains Food Bank Fundraiser

Thank you to all of the students, faculty and family who helped raise money for the South Plains Food Bank.

Instead of collecting cans, students raised $1130 to donate to the food bank. The Middle School Student Council hosted three Spirit Days that included Movie Mania (dress like a movie character), Zoom Day (pajama  pants and regular uniform shirt), and finally anything but a backpack. High School students enjoyed a  week with a relaxed dress code.  The week of fun and fundraising ended with a dodgeball tournament.  It was a successful event. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Girls Basketball

The Varsity Girls Basketball team captured five of the 20 slots in the Hub City Preps Girls Basketball 2023 TAPPS All-City Team announced on Wednesday. Three of those slots are for the highest honors including Coach of the Year, Offensive Most Valuable Player, and Defensive Most Valuable Player.

Head Coach Kyle Simons was recognized as the Coach of the Year. He has been the Girls Basketball Coach for eight years. In addition to coaching, he is the High School Athletic Director and also teaches AP Government.

“With a similar roster to the season before, Simons and assistant coach Riley Foreman engineered an incredible turnaround in 2022-23,” Hub City Preps said. “With a veteran core leading the way, the Lady Patriots blazed to a 27-2 campaign and claimed a co-district championship with Southcrest Christian and then topped the Lady Warriors in a playoff for seeding and again in the Class 2A state semifinals – the first leg of All Saints’ first-ever trip to the state tournament. In his eighth season at the wheel of the Lady Patriots, Simons took his team to new heights and set a new standard moving forward.”

Senior Lauren Bayouth was named as the Offensive Most Valuable Player. Hub City Preps said, “She [Bayouth] closed out a spectacular career by shouldering the role as the Lady Patriots’ unquestionable leader in a season when they charged all the way to the Class 2A state championship game. As the go-to threat every time All Saints had the ball, Bayouth supplied team-bests in scoring (14.4 points per game) and contributed assists (58), while ranking second in rebounding (11.1) and blocked shots (2.3 per game).

The Defensive Most Valuable Player award was earned by senior Chloe Conover. “Relying on her top-shelf athleticism, Conover was a daunting force on defense all season long and a big reason why the Lady Patriots punched their first ticket to the state tournament,” Hub City Preps said. “She piled up 93 blocked shots (4.1 per game) and her hands were where opponents’ possessions often ended quickly with 8.3 defensive rebounds a game, part of her city-best 12.8 boards a night. Conover was also All Saints’ second-leading scorer with 9.8 points a game.”

Juniors Reghan Rose and Ella Scolaro were named to the Third Team.
Hub City Preps described Rose as a “feisty junior that provided a steady scoring and rebounding presence for the Lady Patriots with 8.1 points and 5.5 boards an outing.”
“Ella Scolaro blossomed into a strong complementary ingredient for the Lady Patriots by generating 8.6 points and 7.6 rebounds a game, as well as 35 assists and 52 steals,” Hub City Preps said.

Boys Basketball

Three members of the Varsity Boys Basketball team were named to the Hub City Preps Boys Basketball 2023 TAPPS All-City Team.
Rowe Osborne, Rohan Felton, and Anson Proffitt received honors for leading their team throughout a successful season. The boys team was the 2023 District Runner Up Champions with a record of 26-3. David Chapman coaches the Varsity Boys team with assistance from Skyler Smith.
Senior Rowe Osborne was named to the First Team. “Osborne wrapped up a three-year career as one of the top big men in District 1-2A by helping lead the Patriots to a spectacular season with 15.1 points and 7.5 rebounds a contest, buoyed by 60.8 percent field-goal shooting (208-of-342), with most of his work done in the paint,” Hub City Preps said.
Hub City Preps recognized junior Rohan Felton as a Second Team member. “[Felton is a] sparkplug guard for the Patriots who chimed in on several fronts by leading the team with 81 assists and 87 steals while averaging 7.5 points and 2.9 rebounds a game,” Hub City Preps said.
Sophomore Anson Proffitt was named to the Third Team. “[Proffitt] filled a role as key wingman to Osborne for the Patriots by generating 8.2 points and 3.2 rebounds a game,” Hub City Preps said. “Proffitt also recorded 51 assists and 49 steals.”
