Middle School Students Receive New Ipads
The new semester has brought new excitement for middle school students as they received personal iPads for their instructional use. These iPads are a portion of the devices recently purchased to provide iPads to every All Saints student grades K through 12, along with faculty.
In the coming weeks students in the Lower School will receive their iPads and begin learning to use them. High School students received their devices as they entered 9th grade.
All Saints families learned in December that plans were in place to create a one to one technology environment to make each student’s education more engaging, efficient, and effective. The technology will not only serve students in our current situation with the pandemic, but will provide continuity in learning in the classroom or if students are ill, or they are away from school for travel, athletic events or other student activities.
Participants in the December Legacy Event were invited to contribute to the funding of the iPads and we have raised almost $90,000. Additional funds are needed. To learn about opportunities to contribute please contact Celeste Thompson at email@example.com or (806) 745-7701.

Thanks to a special note written by fourth grade student Ellery Lowe, the faculty will be honored in the new Headrick Center. When Ellery learned about the gears being purchased to fund the new facilities, she began to think about the significance of the gear theme. This prompted her to put her thoughts into a note that she gave to Middle School Division Head, Greg Hutchinson. In her note she compared the role of teachers to the role of gears. “ Gears keep things going and the staff at All Saints has kept us going,” Ellery said. She told Mr. Hutchinson that she wished for teachers to be honored on the new gear wall inside the Middle School. Eager to honor Ellery’s wish, he contacted the Advancement Office to see what was possible. Ellery recently learned that a new gear has been funded and purchased in honor of the All Saints faculty and will be proudly displayed. Thank you Ellery for reminding everyone the importance of our teachers!
Seventh grade student and avid softball player McKanna Garcia is preparing for an opportunity of a lifetime! She will be traveling to Houston tomorrow to play in the Under Armour All American Softball Tournament.
This is the first year that Under Armour has opened up the program and opportunity to junior high students. McKanna tried out in early November and was one of a select few seventh grade athletes to secure a spot. The majority of the junior high athletes are in eighth grade. The program will give McKanna an opportunity to compete and train alongside other top talent from across the nation. She will also get the chance to meet Softball Collegiate All-American and medal winning Olympian Jennie Finch.
This trip is not the only travel that McKanna will make to Houston in January. She currently plays for a travel team called Snyder Blast and her team will head back to Houston for the World Series Tournament on January 29th. These are exciting times for McKanna. Your Patriot family applauds your success and wishes you well this weekend and at the World Series games on January 29.
Cade Brewer and Kenedee Valdez
Two students in the fourth grade were caught in action living out the All Saints Way yesterday! The students were inside for recess and the basketballs were scattered all over the gym. Before lining up to return to the classroom, students are asked to clean up.
Cade Brewer and Kenedee Valdez took the lead on clean up, and went above and beyond the call of duty. They made their way around the gym, collecting EVERY stray ball and placed them neatly back on the basketball rack. Way to go! Thank you for being an example of the All Saints Way.
If you have an example of random acts of kindness or other exemplary behavior that you’d like to share, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Health and Wellness
With the rise in COVID-19 cases in Lubbock and around the world, the need to protect ourselves and our home is greater than ever. We continue to do all we can to keep students safe at All Saints and we appreciate the hard work and diligence from the staff and students. Nurse Lisa would like to recommend the following resource from the CDC with some helpful tips to help protect our homes from COVID-19.

New Spirit Shirt – You Can’t Mask Our Patriot Pride
Are you looking for a new spirit shirt for your child to wear on Wednesdays? The ASES Parent Group has designed a t-shirt option that is currently available to order. The shirt is sold in short or long sleeve with a sport-tek material (like an Under Armour shirt). The deadline to order is January 22.
Finishing Touches Continue
Over the Christmas holiday many finishing touches were made to the Suzan Collins Headrick Center.
The updates serve to inspire and create an environment that is fun and engaging. With student art from Gage Clary ’20 complimenting the Gear Wall, fun facts about the building lining the hallways and inspiring quotes found in the staircase, there is attention to the details. All of these finishes are a reflection of the way All Saints strives every day to surround our students with new and exciting ways to learn.
Athletic Storage Building
Progress continues to be made on the athletic storage building as the outside of the building is almost finished!
This week the work crew is installing the electric. The building will be ready to go for track season! Our coaches and parent volunteers sure will appreciate the “secure” ticket booth that will not blow away in the West Texas wind.
