Virtual Legacy Event 2020

You are invited to join us on December 6th for some holiday cheer and an opportunity to support the students and faculty of All Saints at the Virtual Legacy Event.  This online event is replacing the traditional party that takes place each December and we hope to be able to host an in person event in the coming months when safe to do so.  In the meantime, raising funds to support the mission of our school is important so we encourage everyone to participate.
You should receive a postcard invitation this week with details about the event and raffle.  As in the past, we are asking each All Saints family to sell or purchase five Legacy tickets.  Each ticket sold admits two guests to the virtual party and enters you for a chance to win the raffle.  The participation of our community will determine our success!
In addition to the raffle/party, we plan to offer an online auction that will open on Nov. 30th.  This auction will include the popular grade-level gifts, one of a kind All Saints experiences, and holiday gifts for everyone.  More details to come!

There are still sponsorship opportunities!  If you’d like to become a Legacy Sponsor, contact Dawndi Higgins at dhiggins@allsaintsschool.org.

Attend Legacy For Chance to Win Tuition Awards

Registered guests for the Virtual Legacy Event on December 6th will be entered into a drawing for three $1,000 tuition awards to be awarded during the evening.  As in the past, you must be present to win.  The tuition awards may be used for the 2021-22 school year.  You won’t want to miss your opportunity to win, so we hope you’ll make plans to join us online.

*Purchase your tickets by 4 p.m. on Friday, December 4th to be eligible.

Repurpose Your Gift Cards for Legacy

Do you have unused gift cards collecting dust at home?  Please consider donating them to Legacy!  We’re looking for dining, shopping, entertainment or local services cards with the full balance.  If you’d like to donate, please send the cards, along with your name and the amount, in an envelope marked ADVANCEMENT.  The deadline to donate is November 13th.

 2020-21 Annual Fund Campaign

Each year All Saints invites our community to support the school’s academic and learning environment by making a tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund.  These gifts directly support student programming, technology, athletics, fine arts, and much more.  Because tuition alone does not cover 100% of what is needed to educate a student, the Annual Fund provides the additional revenue needed.

Thank you to the following donors who have already contributed to the All Saints 2020-21 Annual Fund.  Our campaign will continue through May 31.  Gifts can be made online or contact Celeste Thompson at cthompson@allsaintsschool.org in the Advancement office.

Who Kissed the Goat?

MRS. BELK IS THE BIG WINNER
The highlight of this year’s Fall Festival celebration was the Parent Group’s Patriot PuckerUp Contest. Students voted for their favorite faculty member to kiss Lucy the Goat by placing money in pumpkins each day at school for the last two weeks. The winner was High School Counselor Gwen Belk. She enjoyed kissing Lucy so much that she even kissed her twice! The runner up was Lower School Division Head Rachel Scranton who was cheered on by the students to give Lucy a kiss.
As a donation, four high school students were selected to kiss the goat also. Senior Presley Mills, junior Chase Farnsworth, sophomore Campbell Howe, and freshman Harry Roberts each gave Lucy a kiss.
Our Parent Group would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the families that made donations and to all of the hard working parents who made this day possible. We were able to raise over $3,000 that benefits the school!  A very special thank you to our friends, Dustin and Jessica Miller, for escorting Lucy the Goat to campus and helping her feel pretty for her big KISS!  It was a fun event for our Patriot family.

Celebrating Our Veterans
All Saints is proud to honor all of our brave and honored Veterans on Wednesday, November 11.  Due to social distancing, we will be bringing this beloved tradition to the All Saints community virtually.  A link with more information will be shared next week.  We hope you will make time to view this special ceremony and share it with those who have served our country.

All School News

Thankful for Faculty Campaign
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Parent Group is continuing our annual “Thankful For Faculty” giving that will run from November 9th to November 20th.

Due to limited interaction on campus, all items requested from faculty will be posted on Sign Up Genius. This will be a great way for every parent and faculty member to be included in this wonderful opportunity.

On Monday, November 9th, parents will receive an email with a SignUp Genius link that will have a list of faculty/staff and their individual requests. You are invited to select an item for the staff member(s) that you would like to appreciate.

New this year, students will be asked to bring the items directly to the faculty member. If the item requested is too large for a student to carry, your student is virtual, or for any other reason, the parent will need to drop the item off in the administration office (labeled with the faculty member’s name) and coordinate with the faculty/staff member when it is available.

If your teacher’s requests have been fulfilled, please consider helping the faculty who teach the “special’s classes” or the classroom helpers.

Parent Group hopes you will enjoy this opportunity to thank the All Saints Faculty and Staff for the valuable services they provide. Your contributions are very much appreciated! Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact Somer Jaynes at somerjaynes126@gmail.com.

High School Coaches Corner

Cross Country
Congratulations to the All Saints high school boys cross country team and Coach Dino Jones on their Runner-Up finish at the TAPPS State Championship this past Monday in Waco.  The boys team was runner-up for the second consecutive year.  That is quite an accomplishment at the state level.  All Saints was paced by sophomore Lee Taylor who was second overall and senior Ash Bumstead who was 10th overall.  Both Taylor and Bumstead were named to the TAPPS All-State team, and Bumstead was also honored as a member of the TAPPS Academic All State Cross Country team.  Other members of the team include Vincent Paone, Joseph Paone, Sebastain Whitaker, Diego Cervera and Owen Aycock.

Four girls, Campbell Howe, Ella Aycock, Chole Conover, and Abigail Barritt also competed in the state race.  The girls were paced by Ella Aycock who was 23rd overall.  Congratulations to these girls on a good season, and their commitment to running.

Volleyball

Congratulations to the high school volleyball team on their seventh consecutive TAPPS 1-2A district championship. The Patriots swept Southcrest on the road on Thursday, October 29th to claim the title.  All Saints will host the winner of Longview Christian and Ft. Worth Covenant on Monday or Tuesday next week in the area round of the playoffs.  Good luck to Coach Savage and his girls.

Football
The All Saints football team won an exciting district ballgame, Friday afternoon October 30th against San Jacinto.  The game was originally scheduled to be played in Amarillo, but ice and snow made the San Jacinto field unplayable.  In a last-minute scramble, the game was moved to All Saints.  The Patriots prevailed 42-36 in an exciting game.  All Saints will take the field again this Friday at 4:00 pm vs. Kingdom Prep at the Patriot field.
