“Unlocking Potential Through Athletics and Academics”
Introduction: My name is Rohan Felton and I am the founder of MentorMe. I am a rising senior at All Saints Episcopal School.
Background: I have won numerous academic awards in English, Science, Math, and Spanish. I have achieved success in various academic contests in math and number sense at the state level and have competed in the National Chemistry Olympiad. I participate in basketball and golf. I have twice been named All-State in golf and All-District in basketball. I am a certified tutor at Schoolhouse.world, a site that provides free, peer-to-peer tutoring for high school students studying for the SAT. However, my experience tutoring and teaching extends far beyond this. I have coached the All Saints number sense team, numerous middle and high school students in math, chemistry, and SAT prep, and I also give basketball lessons.
Math – all lower, middle, and high school math classes
Science – all lower, middle, and high school science classes
English – lower, middle, and high school English courses, also available to proofread papers prior to submission
Pricing: We will charge $50 per hour for high school classes, $40 per hour for middle school classes, $35 per hour for lower school classes, and $15 per essay. A portion of all proceeds will go toward the All Saints Annual Fund to help fund projects around the school. This can be paid through Venmo or Zelle. My Venmo is @RohanFelton and you can send via Zelle using my phone number 806-281-4931.
Why?: In all of my experience tutoring and giving lessons, I have come to the realization that it is easier to learn the material when the learner and the teacher can relate to each other. In order to accomplish this, I will enlist a group of high school students who are highly qualified to help teach or give lessons in various fields. By employing students, we will be able to connect and form bonds with the learners that are close in age to us because we share similar experiences and ideas.
Our Tutors: All of our tutors are teacher and coach recommended for the courses and sports they are teaching

PSIA News! Exciting Changes!
The Private Schools Interscholastic Association (PSIA) offers opportunities for students in grades 1 through 8 to participate in academic, fine arts, and speech competitions locally and statewide. Its purpose is to support students in their pursuit of excellence while testing themselves against their own accomplishments and those of their peers.
All Saints has been very successful competing at PSIA as we have been state champions in both the elementary and the middle school divisions several times. In 2023 both divisions finished 3rd in the state competition.
We are excited to announce that because of our growth, All Saints is moving into the large school division “AA” beginning this year. The district meet is already set for Saturday, March 2, 2024 and will be hosted by Midland Christian School. The state meet is set for Saturday, April 13, 2024 at the University of Houston.
We are very much looking forward to the new challenges that large school competition offers.
We hope that your child will consider participating this year.
Information about PSIA enrollment will be provided to all students in grades 1 through 8 (via email to parents) within the next couple of weeks. Please look for the announcement.
If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Glenn Davis (email@example.com)

Carpenter and Conover Named TAPPS Fine Arts Students of the Year
Each year, the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) chooses two students, one male and one female, to honor as the top fine arts student in the state. This year, both awards went to All Saints Students.
Calvin Carpenter (12th grade) won Male Fine Arts Student of the Year. He was recognized for his contributions in Field Band, Debate, and Speech where he was also named the Virginia Wirth Award Winner as the top speech and debate student in the state. “I am grateful for how hard my teachers work to prepare me for these events, and I am proud to represent All Saints,” says Carpenter. “Being nominated for this honor was a flattering shock, but then to be selected from other nominees across the state was a true honor.”
Chloe Conover (Class of 2023) won Female Fine Arts Student of the Year. She was recognized for her contributions in One-Act Play, Dance, and Speech. “It’s an honor to be fine arts students of the year, I’m extremely thankful,” says Conover, currently a freshman at Bethune-Cookman University. “I couldn’t have done it without my peers and amazing teachers.”
“I am extremely proud of both of these students,” says Director of Fine Arts Shane Strawbridge. “Their level of accomplishment both individually and as members of a team were evidence enough for them to be recognized as the top students in the state. I hope their accomplishments spur other All Saints students to greater heights as well.”
In addition to their individual accomplishments, All Saints Episcopal School was also named the Top Overall Fine Arts Program in the state.
All Saints Theatre Recognized for Excellence in Education
The Awards of Distinction were created by the Texas Educational Theatre Association (TxETA) to recognize college/universities, school districts, and theatre departments who are making outstanding contributions to raising the standards for theatre education in the school, district, and the state as observed through achievement, curation of resources, diversity, and advocacy for theatre arts. This year, All Saints Episcopal School was recognized as Exemplary at the Lower School level and as Outstanding at the Middle School and High School levels. They are the only private school in Texas to receive this distinction.
“This remarkable accomplishment is a testament to the relentless dedication and hard work exhibited by the entire faculty, staff and students at All Saints Episcopal School,” says Travis Springfield, President of TxETA. “All Saints’ commitment to excellence and relentless pursuit of academic and extracurricular achievements has undoubtedly set an aspiring example for other educational institutions in the region. Reaching the level of TxETA’s Awards of Distinction represents a consistent commitment to educational growth, fostering a supportive learning environment, and promoting a culture of achievement.”
All Saints will be honored at TxETA’s annual awards ceremony during TheatreFest in Galveston this September.
It’s been a FUN first week in PLC and Lower School Music Class!!
