The All Saints family is invited to join together on Thursday, February 10th for our Annual Day of Giving known as “Share the Love Day.”¬† A dollar for dollar match has been offered to encourage participation.¬† A generous donor will match up to $30,000 in new gifts given between now and midnight on February 10th!¬† They hope that this incentive will inspire others to join them in giving from the heart. ‚ô•

Funds raised from the Day of Giving will benefit the All Saints Annual Fund, which provides many important resources for the school.  Currently, the tuition that families pay to attend covers 85% of the actual cost.  The Annual Fund bridges the gap between tuition and what is really needed.  Unlike tuition dollars, donations to the Annual Fund are tax deductible.  Gifts of every size are needed and helpful!   PARTICIPATION IS EASY!  Simply scan the QR Code below, click the Give Now button, or Text ASESLove to 243-725 to give.


Enrollment Update

Letters and emails will be sent this week to our current school community asking for each family’s enrollment forms to be completed and returned for the 2022-2023 school year. The deadline for submitting enrollment forms is March 11. This year has been a remarkable year of challenge, growth, and opportunity. We would love to have your children with us in the fall. You have a choice when it comes to your child’s education, thank you for choosing All Saints! If you have questions regarding your child’s grade level expectation or curriculum, be on the lookout for your invitation to a grade-level parent meeting coming later this month.  We will be sharing valuable information about next year at All Saints for your child!  For questions regarding financial aid, please contact Valerie Tucker in the business office.

Enrollment will open up to the community on March 22.  Please return your children’s enrollment forms ASAP to ensure their spots in the fall!

Admissions Update

Life post-pandemic has ushered in a great deal of interest in All Saints. Many packets have been mailed, tours have been scheduled, and interest is high in many grade levels. Current parents are strongly encouraged to let Paige McKay and Abby Scioli in the office know immediately if you have additional children at home whom you wish to enroll for the first time at All Saints in the fall. There may not be a spot later if you wait. If you know of people who might be interested in being a part of the All Saints community, please feel free to have them give Paige and Abby a call now. They would be delighted to give them a tour of our campus and share more about our school and availabilities.

Parent Group Dine Out Program – February 9


Chili Cook-Off – February 10

All I See is Red – February 14

All I See is Red Day is celebrated on Monday, February 14.  The students will be invited to wear something red or Valentine themed.  This is a special tradition for our Eighth grade students who sell and deliver gifts and songs to each grade level to raise money for their end-of-the-year Eighth Grade Banquet.

Pig Day ūüź∑ – March 1

All Saints celebrates National Pig Day each year.  It is a beloved tradition that started many years ago by one of our own past art teachers, Ellen Stanley and her sister, Mary Lynne.

National Pig Day came about when two sisters were looking for something fun to fill the gap between Christmas and Easter.  Ellen suggested a celebration with pigs and who doesn’t like pigs?  Her sister was on board.  To make it official the ladies registered the day with Chase’s Calendar of Annual Events.

Why Does It Cost $5 to Race a Pig?
The money that we raise on Pig Day goes directly to Heifer International.  Their mission is to end hunger and poverty in a sustainable way by supporting and investing alongside local farmers and their communities.

How Do I Sign Up to Race?
There is no sign up, just bring your money on race day along with your mechanical pig!  Pre-Kindergarten through Fourth Grade will race mechanical pigs.  MS and HS can put their robotics skills to good use and race an open/modified Mechanical Pig.

Where Do I Buy a Mechanical Pig?
Here are a few suggestions:

What Do the Students Wear on Pig Day?
Students may wear pink shirts (or pig shirts) and pigtails!

Can Parents Attend?
Parents are welcome to attend.

Is there a Special Lunch Served on Pig Day?
There will be a special lunch this year.  You may order your pigs in a blanket through the lunch app.

All Saints Fun Run – April 29

Love Fitness, Volunteering and All Saints? We would LOVE to hear from you! The Patriot Fun Run is happening again this year on April 29 and there will be lots of volunteer opportunities. Please contact Dawndi Higgins at if you are interested in helping out. The Fun Run Committee will begin meeting soon!

Booster Club Sponsored Golf Tournament – May 9th


Project Graduation Video Wins Area Contest

*This video contains content that might be disturbing to younger viewers.

All Saints High School Theatre students planned, recorded, and produced a short Drunk Driving Public Safety Announcement as part of the Project Graduation competition through the Texas Department of Public Safety. All Saints’ video came in 1st place for the West Texas local competition and is moving on to compete at the state level. The students earned a $2,000 mini-grant for their efforts with the opportunity to earn up to $8,000 additional through the final statewide competition.

The money earned from the contest will help cover the cost of Project Graduation for the Class of 2022 and 2023.  Project Graduation is an all night party organized and hosted by parents.  It offers a drug and alcohol-free party to celebrate our graduates! Congratulations to our junior and senior theatre students who worked on this project.

If you or your business would like to make a donation to the All Saints Project Graduation fund, please contact


Our second graders were able to enjoy a special day last Friday for being the big winners of the Legacy ticket contest.  They enjoyed a pajama day complete with donuts and hot chocolate as a reward for selling more Legacy tickets than any other grade at All Saints.  We appreciate the efforts of these students and their families in supporting the Legacy event.

Yesterday our Third Grade students enjoyed a full day of Chinese New Year activities culminating with their annual trek through the campus shouting Happy New Year in Chinese holding their homemade dragons. The dragon parade is a favorite event each year at All Saints.
The third grade teachers would like to extend a big thank you to the parent volunteers who helped with yesterday’s activities.

Our second grade students have drawn for their presidents and are beginning the research phase in preparation for the upcoming Hall of Presidents on February 25. This is a long-standing tradition at All Saints and a favorite memory among many of our older students.



Congratulations to sixth grade student and ASES Middle School Spelling Bee Champion Gurvir Gill! Thirty-eight middle school students competed in the Annual MS Spelling Bee last week.  It was an exciting day with 14 rounds and 192 words covered, Gurvir Gill won with fifth grade student Amelia Anderson earning runner up.

‚ÄúGurvir is a hard worker,‚ÄĚ said English teacher Mrs. Nancy Cooper. ‚ÄúHe contacted me in first grade requesting a MS spelling bee list. He has been working on this for several years!‚ÄĚ

He will represent All Saints in the Lubbock Regional Spelling Bee on March 26 at the YWCA in Lubbock.  Gurvir will compete against other private, public and charter schools in the region.  The winner of the Regional meet will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Oxon Hill, Maryland.

Good luck, Gurvir and congratulations to both Gurvir and Amelia on a job well done.  We are proud of you and all of our middle school students who participated in this exciting event.


The middle school girls’ basketball season has been full of growth. They learned how to handle different situations during games and now know the importance of playing as a team. The girls had to overcome adversity in many ways and we saw them every time rise up to the occasion.

These young ladies worked hard every single day, but they also knew how to have fun. We laughed and enjoyed every practice and every game with these great girls. We are sad to see the season end, but we are extremely proud of the girls and are so excited for the years to come. They will do amazing things!

Coaches Jeremy and Shelby Binion

The middle school boys wrapped up their season last weekend at the WTCAA Tournament in Amarillo. This was a very competitive tournament and the Patriots had two hard fought games! We played our best ball both offensively and defensively. We held our opponents to fewer points and scored more points than we have in some of our previous games. The seventh and eighth grade boys have made some major improvements over this season and we have laid a good base of skills and abilities leading toward next year’s basketball season.

Coach Baldwin



The 2021 All Saints High School Yearbook, The Foundation, recently earned a prestigious First Place Award from the American Scholastic Press Association out of the thousands of yearbooks submitted last year.

‚ÄúWhat a difficult year [2020-2021] this has been!¬† The fact that you have been able to produce such a yearbook under these extreme circumstances is a testimony to the dedication of the staff and adviser,‚ÄĚ the anonymous judge said. ‚ÄúReviewing your yearbook has been very special for me.¬† I was able to visualize a very informative memory of what life and learning are like in school and from home during this past school year.‚ÄĚ

The contest is scored on a points tally from five categories: content presentation, general page design, general photography, publication structure, and creativity for a grand total of 1,000 points. All Saints scored 935 points to earn the First Place classification, with the school’s highest scoring for their content presentation, general page design, and creativity.

Using the theme ‚ÄúAs It Unfolds‚ÄĚ along with a chronological structure, the staff worked to portray a school year fraught with uncertainty as the COVID-19 pandemic continued.¬† Portia Clary, Haley Dickerson, and Reagan Hunter were co-editors along with junior editor Regan Andrews.¬† Staff members were Campbell Carper, Emma Condra, Brynlee Dalley, Sofia Dominguez, Jayden Johnson,¬† Reghan Rose, and Preslie Tarver.¬† Shelly Smith is the adviser.


During the third quarter, high school students have the opportunity to choose a fun and engaging 30-minute class to learn something new, fun and sometimes challenging.  The enrichment classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  For this quarter students are able to choose from the following classes: advanced disc golf, card games, dancing, jazz band, literary criticism, mentoring (working with PLC students), learning digital design and spikeball.  A big thanks to high school teachers who have given their time and effort to teach something new to high school students.


All Saints is excited to host AIMS testing on February 5th and 6th.  This is the second time in three years we’ve had the opportunity to offer the test on campus.  The purpose of the testing is to assist and guide students prior to attending post-graduate studies with their college and career decisions.  This test and consultation are offered in Dallas however, All Saints is fortunate to have AIMS representatives travel to Lubbock and offer this to All Saints sophomores, juniors and seniors.  Below is general information about this service.

‚ÄúAptitude Inventory Measurement Service (AIMS) is a non-profit testing and scientific research facility located in Dallas, Texas. The idea behind the service was to use the information from testing to present the individual findings to the person taking the tests so that he or she may use that knowledge in making college and career decisions. The AIMS staff administers a battery of tests to help individuals determine their natural strengths. The AIMS program provides clients with a tailored report and summary based on their scientifically measured abilities. Test administrators interpret the results of each examinee‚Äôs efforts in order to provide career and college suggestions based on the combination of the individual‚Äôs aptitudes and characteristics.‚ÄĚ

Powerlifting just finished their third meet and almost all of our powerlifters have recorded weight. At this point, the boys are following the scores we need to beat to qualify for regionals as we continue to strengthen up. Our captains have really stepped up and done a great job leading many of our workouts.  I am very proud of the growth and resolve this group of young men has shown.
