7th Annual Swing for the Future Golf Tournament

Are you ready for a day off?  We have an event that will allow you to support the school, get some exercise, and have fun with friends!

We sell tickets before the event that will allow you to improve your game.  We welcome ALL LEVELS of golfers!  The following tickets will be available to purchase before you begin.

Mulligans ($5):  A mulligan is an extra stroke allowed after a poor shot, not counted on the scorecard.
Free Ball Toss ($5):  This will allow you to throw the ball instead of hitting it with the club.
Tee Off From the Red ($10):You can tee off from the ladies tee box.

Are you a “serious golfer”?  We have you covered too.

The event is held at the Rawls Course at TTU.  It’s a beautiful course with several accolades for those golfers looking for a great place to play!

Every family is invited to participate by gathering pledges and donations for their student on the easy to use Fun Run website ( All students will be included in the day of fun on May 7th.

A pep rally for grades PS-8 will introduce students to the Fun Run, the character development theme and ways to help the school with their participation.  We’ll get inspired & energized!

We will have 10 fun-filled days of working together to build momentum for gathering pledges with daily challenges, prizes, and character theme presentations about teamwork, care, courage, grit, and celebration.

We’ll enjoy one of the best days of the school year as students run, walk, and skip around “mini-tracks” set up on Patriot Field.  Everyone will receive a free Fun Run t-shirt to wear!  Students can do up to 35 laps during the run, but the emphasis will be on fitness and fun.  At the end, their laps will be tallied and smiles will abound.

Chapel Notes

Spring has sprung if the red tulips in the lower school courtyard and the purple martins in the north side birdhouse are any indication!  I hope this email finds your family well. 

As administration continues to monitor the COVID-related statistics for Lubbock and our campus, I have some great news to share.  We have reached another milestone in returning to a regular school routine.  It has been heartening to note that case counts and vaccinations among staff continue to trend in encouraging manners.  As a result, we are prepared to increase the 8:00am Chapel in-person attendance.

The following changes begin the week of April 19:

  • Mondays and Tuesdays – First through Fourth Grades will attend 8:00am Chapel in Jones Gym in person on both days
  • Wednesdays and Thursdays – Fifth through Eighth Grades will attend 8:00am Chapel in Jones Gym in person on both days
  • Fridays – Preschool through Kindergarten will continue to attend 8:00am Chapel in Jones Gym in person
  • Students, staff and guests in Jones Gym will begin to use Books of Common Prayer on Mondays through Thursdays

Parents are invited to attend Chapel on the days in which their child(ren) attends in person. Parents will continue to use the main Jones Gym Entrance (Door M).  Masks will continue to be required on everyone Second Grade and older in Jones Gym during Chapel.

Eighth and Fourth Grade students will also be scheduled to serve as acolytes or readers in Chapel.  Parents, be on the lookout for an email with the schedule. 

Services each morning will continue to be streamed live via the school’s website and Facebook page. Students not in Jones Gym will continue to attend virtually in their classrooms or at home.

Through the gift of technology, the school has been able to offer worship each weekday morning since August 2019, even through school closures and summer. Chapel has been, and continues to be, a much-needed balm during times of uncertainty and transition.

Thank you, to EVERYONE for their consistent dedication to the protocols set in place thus far.  Worshipping together at 8:00am Chapel is perhaps the oldest tradition of All Saints Episcopal School.  Thanks be to God for this next step towards that goal!

Heather Skinner

In the Fall of 2020, All Saints parent Heather Skinner joined the All Saints team as Lunchroom Coordinator.  In the midst of a very unusual year, she has more than stepped up to the challenges of pandemic food service.

During a recent kitchen inspection by the Lubbock Health Department, we received a superior rating, thanks to Heather’s great efforts.  In addition to keeping our kids safe and implementing additional safety protocols, she has introduced a healthier menu along with some fun food options.  Did you know that every other Wednesday Mrs. Skinner cooks pancakes & sausage or chicken & waffles for the kids?   Who can beat breakfast for lunch?  The kids love it.  Another favorite among the kids is the homemade spaghetti and meatballs.    She is also introducing some theme lunches in May.  On May 4th, National Star Wars Day, we will have a “May the Fourth Be With You” menu.  This will include the regular menu + some fun extra treats FOR EVERYONE that are FREE (Yoda Soda, Light Saber Pretzels and Vaderade)!

In addition to cooking up yummy food for our students, Heather Skinner and Brett Longley have worked together to cook special lunches for the faculty and staff.  Maintenance Specialist Kyle Patterson has worked behind the scenes assisting with kitchen preparation and has been a huge help to Heather.  Christy Hutchinson has also recently joined the team as a volunteer.  She assists with assembly of the lunches, along with plating and distribution of the meals.  As if her plate is not full enough, Heather has graciously agreed to prepare the food for the Junior Italian Dinner on April 20 (orders are due today).  Don’t miss out on this yummy meal for your family!

How do you order school lunches?  It’s easy.  Go to  to set up your account and place an order.  If you have questions, contact

Thank you to all of our lunchroom workers for these special treats and for going above and beyond the call of duty!

All School News

Library News

Get ready for The Return of The Book Fair!  We’ve been working with Scholastic on safety protocols, so things will look a little different:  smaller,  eWallet payments, limited number attending at any given time.  This much-loved event will happen in the library May 10-14.  An online option will still be available.  Lots more details to come!


The skies above All Saints were filled with colorful kites on April 11 as we enjoyed Family Kite Day. Thank you to Caprock Kites and Kenny Maines for joining us! It was a beautiful day for flying a kite and so much fun for our community! A special thank you to Parent Group and everyone that had a hand in bringing Kite Day back to campus!

Summer Camps

Summer is only a few months away and it is time to start thinking about camps!

Many of the camps offered on campus allow All Saints families to have first pick for camp registration.  After the allotted time has passed, the registration will open up to the Lubbock community.  They fill up quickly so now is the time to sign up.

We will be offering Art, Band, Theatre, Orchestra and Volleyball camps this summer. The Art, Theatre and Orchestra camp registration forms are found below.  The rest of the forms will be coming soon.  Keep a look out for more information coming your way.

Yee-Haw!  This Friday is Tricycle Rodeo!  Four guests per child are welcome to attend and masks will be required.  More information and details will be sent to Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten students.

Our Fourth Grade Creative Design students built their very own robots! Each student teamed up with a partner to build (from scratch), design and code their creations. The kids enjoyed watching them “come to life.”



Middle School and High School students, faculty, administration, and parents met at All Saints on Saturday to help clean up the Kirby Commons theatre space, build set pieces, and paint scenic backdrops in preparation for upcoming productions of Matilda, Jr. on April 30-May 1 and Pirates Past Noon on May 15. Thank you to everyone who came to help!

All Saints Shark Tank

All Saints Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grade students were excited to present their All Saints Shark Tank projects recently under the guidance of technology teacher Mr. Levi Savage.

The Shark Tank presentations were the final phase of an exciting project, which included idea development, creativity, research, collaboration, and communication. Students presented ideas to judges who then had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss investment strategies for the project.

A sincere thank you to Mr. Chase Key and Dr. Clint Carpenter for taking time to judge the class presentations and give feedback to our students. Way to go Patriots!


Our boys and girls golf teams competed last week at the Holy Cross Invitational.  Both teams placed third overall.  Jackson Tyler had a strong round of golf and led the boys with a score of 37.

Both teams will compete in the WTCAA Tournament on April 22nd at Reese Golf Center in Lubbock.  Good luck to our Patriot Golf team!

Our boys and girls tennis teams are both working hard in preparation for the WTCAA competition next week in Lubbock. Our sixth and seventh grade teams competed against Southcrest on Monday and will come up against Lubbock Trinity tomorrow.

We have a great group of middle school tennis players.  Good Luck at the WTCAA Tournament on April 22.  Go Patriots!

American Red Cross Fundraiser
The high school Presidential Council recently spearheaded a fundraiser to support the local American Red Cross.  A students versus faculty beach ball volleyball game was held in Patriot Gym.  The high school student body raised $450.  Mr. Clay Mercer from Happy State Bank generously offered for Happy State Bank to match the donation.  Last week the high school was able to present the donation to Deborah Finlayson, Executive Director of the American Red Cross and thank Mr. Mercer for Happy State Bank’s matching donation.

Two seniors, Vincent and Sebastian, toured the University of Virginia

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions … Where to Attend College in the Fall
When deciding which college a senior will attend, the timeline varies.  Some know early in the fall of their senior year, while others wait to receive admission decisions in late fall.  However, other seniors may not know about admissions decisions until after they return from holiday break through the spring semester.  While many seniors know by spring break where they will be attending, a few have recently received additional college admissions offers and have made some quick visits across the country to tour the colleges.  May 1 is the official deadline for when seniors must notify colleges whether they plan on attending or not.  It’s always exciting to see what colleges our seniors are considering and where they decide to go!

Senior Day Trip
Seniors were not able to make the leadership day trip to Palo Duro Canyon last May due to Covid.  After working around fine arts, athletic and academic schedules for months, this senior class was able to finally find a day to be able to make the trip to Palo Duro.   This event gave the seniors a special time to come together and reflect on their senior year and the friendships they have developed while at All Saints.  A big THANK YOU to Mr. Brashear, Mrs. Key, Ms. Rojas and Mr. Simons for sponsoring the event and providing the cookout.

Mrs. Key and the Pandemic
In Mrs. Key’s AP Psychology class this year, she has mentioned to her students how she was somewhat stressed at times during the pandemic and her go to has been a Sonic corndog; numerous times.  Her students found her corndog stories to be very funny even if she was tying the stories to Psychology concepts.  Last week Jacki DeClerk and Kate Henderson decided to surprise Mrs. Key with a corndog bouquet.  Needless to say, Mrs. Key was touched by their gesture and all enjoyed many laughs …. and a few corndogs!
Senior Tables
It’s that time …. We want to showcase our seniors and celebrate them by highlighting these special upcoming graduates for the All Saints community to see!  Senior parents, if your senior would like to participate in this special event, we need you to help.  Please work with your senior to collect memorabilia to display on a table (pictures, items that identify certain activities they have participated, awards they have received, the future college they will attend, etc.); anything meaningful your student wants to showcase.  Tables will need to be decorated between April 16-19 in Garrison Corridor and need to be taken down by May 18.

Senior Luncheon
This year’s senior luncheon, hosted by the All Saints Alumni Association, takes place April 22 from 12:00-1:30pm at 4ORE Golf.  Seniors need to RSVP to Dawndi Higgins at by Friday, April 16.
