Chapel Notes

What a remarkable year!  If you had said that in August 2019 when we commenced with school chapels for the year – that we would have continued having them each morning for the next 22 months – I would have been quite surprised. Who’d a-thunk it?! Being able to go virtual with chapel last spring when things shut down and then being able to continue daily during the 2020 summer was a gift.  The school community has never felt more like family than it has over the last year.  Thank you, first to God, for bringing us all together and to everyone for their heart and spirit.  We are blessed as a school family.

One of my favorite blessings this year has been getting to spend time with a group of our fifth graders.  These friends have come to Jones Gym every morning early to help me set up for chapel and have done an amazing job in offering the announcements after chapel concludes.  West Osborne, Lucy Maupin, Anna Belle Needham, Trey Dalley, and Andrew Hull:  you are the best.  Thank you for your love of this school, your commitment to the Blue Crew and to chapel, and for your friendship!  In addition, I also need to mention fourth grade student, Lilly Taylor.  Lilly has been invaluable to me each morning as well.  Meeting me in my office at 7:30am, Lilly assists in all things chapel prep, from getting things set to helping with the acolytes, to keeping me organized.  Lilly, you are a rock star!

One final, big thank you.  It goes to the amazing Clint Barrick.  Mr. Barrick has been our chapel organist since 2012.  He is a gifted musician, heartfelt chapel champion, and dear friend.  Thank you, Clint, for your heart and your passion for sharing music with us all.

Peace to you all this summer!  My prayer for you all is for health, laughter, and rest.  We might have some once a week chapel times online in June and July – Tilly the dog has been missing everyone!

Blessings,

Chaplain Paige+

Kindergarten Fiesta

🎉 Kindergarten Fiesta was celebrated on April 30.  The children made banderitas and pinatas for decoration to be used for the fiesta.  The students have a Mexican market place to see and play with articles from Mexico during center times.  The study culminates with a Fiesta around Cinco de Mayo.  For the performance, they sang various songs in Spanish and dressed in cultural clothing from Mexico.  Afterwards, the children enjoyed local Mexican cuisine and a Mariachi band.

Fourth Grade Trip to Carlsbad Caverns

🦇 Last week our Fourth Grade students loaded the bus for a long awaited trip to Carlsbad Caverns.  The trip normally happens much earlier in the school year.  Our students study bats and how caverns are formed before traveling to New Mexico to visit the famous site.  This National Park is one of God’s most beautiful creations and so much fun for our fourth grade class to experience.

Mother’s Day Tea

☕ Pre-Kindergarten and Fourth Grade students celebrated their moms with a special Mother’s Day Tea.  It was an enjoyable time for both classes that included sweet words of thanks, gifts, songs and yummy treats!  Our Patriot moms are appreciated at All Saints.

Lower School Theatre

Our lower school theatre students did a fantastic job bringing Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning  Magic Tree House: Pirates Past Noon to life.  In this play, Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to an exotic island with pirates, where the two discover that real treasure has nothing to do with gold, but with the people we cherish and the moments we share with one another. Students in Third and Fourth grades were responsible for speaking roles, and the First and Second grade students worked as ensemble members. The younger students were also in charge of making their own costume pieces including pirate hats, island animal gear, and a cheeky pirate parrot. We very much “treasure” the hard work and contribution of the LS theatre students.

Three Students Receive Black Belts

In Third Grade music class, our students learn to play recorders.  For each level they reach, they receive a different color “belt” to tie on their recorder.  The highest belt is black and we had three students achieve their Black Belt status.  Congratulations!

First Grade Oral Book Reports

This time of year is exciting for First Grade students.  Oral Book Reports are part of the spring curriculum in First Grade.  The students read their book, gather props, and practice several times before the big day arrives.  This is one of their first experiences with public speaking.  The book reports help to prepare them for Second Grade and the Hall of Presidents.  The students dress in costume as they present their book report to their peers and family members.

MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS

MIDDLE SCHOOL & HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE PRESENT MATILDA

The middle and high school students came together to rehearse and perform Roald Dahl’s Matilda, Jr, a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. In the musical, Matilda must not only face the difficulty of the first day of school, but she must also endure the terrible headmistress Trunchbull and two parents who don’t seem to care about her at all. In addition to acting, students took on roles in sound and lighting, assistant direction, set construction, scenic painting, and choreography. We are very proud of these ‘revolting’ children!
