A  Letter from our Head of School

Dear Patriot Family,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at All Saints, I hope everyone is enjoying a restful, productive and fun summer.  It is a well-deserved break for all and a chance to recharge, improve, prepare and get excited for another successful and challenging school year in 2022-23. Your administration, faculty and staff are hard at work reviewing and improving processes and procedures in several areas including school safety, curriculum and instruction, extracurricular offerings, staffing and facility upgrades.  It is great to see so many of our young Patriots back on campus for a busy summer of outstanding academic, athletic and fine art camps.  

Congratulations to our high school students, faculty and staff on earning their second Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) Henderson Cup Championship.  All Saints was named as the most outstanding 2A high school in Texas by TAPPS for this past school year by securing the Henderson Cup.  The award is a compilation of points awarded for championships and successes at the state level in academics, athletics and fine arts.  The team and individual successes are impressive with team State Championships in Academics (second year in a row), Dance, Volleyball, Boys Golf, Girls and Boys Tennis and Field Band. In addition to those team state championships, One Act Play, Fall Girls and Boys Team Tennis, Boys Match Play Golf and Boys Cross Country finished as State Runner Up.  The list of individual state champion and runner up titles in conjunction with the team successes is too lengthy to list.  This accomplishment acknowledges the hard work and commitment to excellence by so many of our students and faculty. 

For me, the overwhelming success of our high school and the quality of the graduates offer a great picture of All Saints as a whole.  We only have to look at the foundations that are being built academically, athletically and in fine arts in the Patriot Learning Center, Lower School and the Middle School to see where the magic is happening.  After a two-year break due to COVID the Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) competition returned last spring. All Saints picked up where they left off prior to COVID with a repeat state academic championship and a state championship in One Act Play for our middle school division.  Our first through fourth grade students also had success with several students advancing to the state competition.  The All Saints experience is forging a strong foundation in academics, athletics, fine arts, service beyond self and spiritual growth.

Getting a break from the non-stop schedule of the last six weeks of school gives us a chance to  gain perspective on what it means to develop and educate the “whole child.”  All Saints is a special place and stands alone in our region with its pursuit of excellence in all areas. We should all be thankful to be a part of the All Saints community of students, families, teachers and staff and the ever increasing number of graduates and alumni.  It is great to be an All Saints Patriot!

On behalf of everyone at All Saints have a fantastic summer break! We will be ready for a great 2022-23 school year and look forward to seeing you in August.   

With Patriot Pride,

Robert Brashear
Head of School

All Saints Wins Best Overall High School in TAPPS 2A

Over the weekend, Athletic Director Kyle Simons and Fine Arts Director Shane Strawbridge traveled to Waco to receive the award earned by our high school, the coveted Henderson Cup.  All Saints was named the most outstanding 2A private high school in Texas and received the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) highest honor – the Henderson Championship Cup for the 2021-2022 school year.  This is the second time All Saints has won the Henderson Cup in the high school’s ten year history. All Saints won the Henderson Cup in 2016 as a 1A school.

All Saints surpassed 36 other 2A TAPPS high schools to earn the title.  The distinguished Henderson Championship Cup recognizes one school from each classification as the highest-ranking school in the state within that classification.  All Saints High School received the Henderson Cup by earning the most points through academic, athletic, and fine arts competitions. All Saints is the only private school in the Lubbock area to win the prestigious Henderson Championship Cup in recent years.

“Winning the Henderson Cup again is an outstanding accomplishment for the students, faculty and staff we have at All Saints High School,” Head of School Robert Brashear said. “The overwhelming and continuing success of All Saints at the high school state level in academics, athletics and fine arts is a testament to the culture and pursuit of excellence in all disciplines at All Saints, from our youngest pre-school Patriots to our high school graduates. The future is bright at All Saints and we welcome the challenges of the upcoming school year.”

With a total of 86 points to win the Henderson Cup, All Saints compiled 54 state championships, including Fine Arts Teacher of the Year and Fine Arts Female Student of the Year.  The athletic teams had four team state championships, six individual championships, four team state runner-up finishes, two state finalist finishes, and two bi-district finishes.  The Fine Arts department ended the year with six state championships and one state runner up title while the Academics Department was the overall state academic champions as well as earning 12 state championships (2 team championships in Yearbook, and Speech & Debate) as well as ten individual state championships. All first place finishes are a state championship.

In addition, the high school band won the 2021 Field Band State Championship last fall for all Divisions 1A-6A and the tennis and golf teams were State Runner-Up in the 2021 Fall Team Tennis and Fall Team Golf State Championships for Divisions 1A-6A. These championships currently do not contribute to the overall Henderson Cup points tally.

“I’m so pleased for our high school students and faculty to have achieved the accomplishment of receiving the Henderson Championship Cup!  This prestigious award is a reflection of the outstanding and extremely talented and dedicated high school students who continually push themselves in many of the academic, fine arts and athletics activities offered at All Saints Episcopal School,” High School Division Head Tammy Edmonson said.  “Our faculty’s high standards and rigor have helped to build the many successful achievements our students have experienced.  It’s exciting to see how our students will continue to excel this coming school year.”

Congratulations to the high school students, teachers and staff!  Well done.  (To learn more, click the “News” tab from the top menu bar)

COUNSELOR’S CORNER

Summer means free time and free time equates to more access to electronic devices. Keeping your children safe and protected from unwanted internet “friends” is of utmost importance and yet, it is exhausting.  Installing Parent Control Software on your child’s phone can certainly put parameters on what your child is viewing and what information is coming in. Qustodio and BARK are two parental control tools that can help you keep up.  Most importantly, talk with your child and assure them that if something questionable comes up on their phone, you can help keep them safe by having them share it with you. Don’t forget to assure them that they will not be in trouble for sharing, this will open up the lines of communication with your child.

LS Summer Reading

We are firm believers that students and parents need a break during the summer, time to rest, recharge, and have fun! However, many research studies have shown that students can lose up to 30% of their learning during the summer months. While it is important to take a little break, it is also necessary to keep the brain engaged academically. This work should be meaningful, age and developmentally appropriate, and most importantly, aligned with standards.

Junior Investiture Ceremony

The Junior Class recently participated in leadership training and planning for their upcoming senior year. The transition to seniors is an opportunity for these students to rise up to and take on the responsibility of leading the high school.  These incoming seniors were led by Dr. George Comiskey, Associate Professor of Practice, Associate Director for External Relations, CCRC at Texas Tech University, who helped the juniors envision what they would like to accomplish for the 2022-2023 school year.

Following the leadership training and planning event, juniors and their parents participated in the Junior Investiture Ceremony.  This is a continuation of the training they have received and is a symbolic ceremony officially recognizing them as they step into the student leadership role for the All Saints student body and community. Each junior received their Senior Leadership Pin and a “senior” shirt during the ceremony.

International Science Fair

SOPHOMORE PLACES IN INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE FAIR

Congratulations to sophomore Calvin Carpenter who placed fourth in Microbiology on May 13 at the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Atlanta, Georgia. Carpenter is the first All Saints student to advance from the State Science Fair to the International Science Fair.

At the ISEF he met several Nobel Laureates and participated in several lecture series with world-renown scientists.

He has been continuing his study about midwinter bacteria in bat roosts that inhibits a deadly fungus, Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd), which causes White-Nose Syndrome in bats. Carpenter first learned about this fungal threat to bats while on the All Saints fourth-grade field trip to Carlsbad Caverns.

Carpenter has competed in the state science fair five years with his continuing research on the causes of the bat disease. His research has led him to compete in numerous competitions this spring.
