Legacy Sponsors

Wow Bags Support Local Merchants

Planning the school’s first virtual Legacy Event has presented challenges including the dilemma of thanking event sponsors.  While Legacy sponsors normally enjoy special perks such as reserved seats and parking, those had to be replaced.  A creative solution came about that will not only delight the sponsors but will also support local merchants… the WOW bag!  This holiday bag will be filled with treats curated from businesses who are regular contributors to Legacy.  Their loyalty to the school led us to support them by purchasing items that would normally be donated.  What’s in the WOW bag?  Become a Legacy sponsor and you’ll see!  Sponsorships opportunities remain – contact Dawndi Higgins for more information.  dhiggins@allsaintsschool.org

Patriot Spotlight

John David Latour
Past Patriot John David Latour recently led a volunteer team of seven high school students in an Eagle Scout Project.  The project not only benefited the school but also honored the kind spirit of the beloved Suzan Collins Headrick whom the middle school building is named after.

“By completing the landscaping around the building, paying particular attention to the ways in which I can incorporate bright, long-lasting colors,” said John David, “the project will honor her joyful spirit.”

John David and his team landscaped two large beds around the Suzan Collins Headrick Center.  The project began with the prep work that included:  adding gypsum to the soil of both beds to aerate and make the soil easier to dig, the covering of each area with weed barrier, designing the layout of the plants, digging the holes,  and finally mixing Happy Frog soil in to the soil to feed the plants.

After the prep work was done, they added one 20 gallon dessert willow tree to each bed, along with three japanese blood grass plants, three pots of variegated sedum , a pot of Texas salvia plants, two pots of wall germander plants, two ice plants, and one yucca approximately two and a half feet tall in each bed.  It looks lovely.  We are grateful that John David came “back to his roots” and decided to complete his Eagle Scout Project at All Saints.

Other team members included: Grant Cannon, Spencer Johnson, Rowe Osborne, Keshav Ramesh, Brady Scott, and Avery Wisniewski. We are grateful for the hard work of these young men led by John David and the beautiful gift the landscaping and plants are to the school.  Congratulations to John David Latour on the completion of his Eagle Scout Project!

South Plains Food Bank Virtual Food Drive
This year more than ever organizations that support others in need are hurting as a result of the increased demand due to circumstances related to COVID-19.  Unfortunately, the South Plains Food Bank is unable to collect food this holiday season for the U Can Share Food Drive.  This has been a wonderful tradition for many years in the Lubbock area and for the All Saints community who has graciously donated and supported this cause in years past.  We want to continue this support by encouraging All Saints faculty, staff and families to donate to the virtual food drive for SPFB!  Making an online donation is easy, click here to donate now!

High School

Thanksgiving Dinner
High School students participated in the 9th annual Thanksgiving dinner event.  Students enjoyed a feast and participated in games and the always entertaining pie eating contest!   After lots of laughs and silliness, the Junior Class walked away with the Top Turkey Award!

A special thank you to Krista Bumstead and several other high school parents who generously hosted and donated to this fun event.

Advent Project
This year’s advent project for high school students is collecting clothing items for cold weather to be donated to the Salvation Army.  Last school year high school students were involved in service work at this organization and felt the need to assist with helping those in need during the winter time.  Even though the students are not able to volunteer at the Salvation Army at this time, they want to help provide much needed items during this time of year.  Students are asked to bring their item(s) to school by December 4.

Ninth Grade – adult and children’s socks
Tenth Grade – hats
Eleventh Grade – gloves
Twelfth Grade – scarves

Volleyball

Volleyball
Congratulations to the high school volleyball program on another fantastic season.  It has been a busy couple of weeks with the Patriots making a strong playoff run ending last night in the TAPPS 2A State Semi-Finals.
Last Tuesday, All Saints swept Fort Worth Covenant to capture their seventh consecutive area championship.  They followed that up on Saturday with another straight set victory over Weatherford Christian to secure the TAPPS 2A North Regional Championship sending them to the state tournament for the fifth time in six years.  On Tuesday, the Patriots battled two-time defending state champion Red Oak Ovilla Christian in the state semi-finals falling in a hard-fought match played at Vernon College.  What a great season by Coach Savage and his girls.  The future is bright for Patriot Volleyball!

Basketball
The All Saints Boys basketball team got their season started last Friday night with an 83-46 home victory over Cotton Center.  It was a great start for the Patriots.  The basketball season will pick up after the Thanksgiving holiday with regular game play.  The season looks promising for both the girls and boys programs.
