Hasselkus Earns Academic Honors

All Saints Episcopal School is proud to announce that a member of its 2020 graduating class is receiving honors by the College Board’s National Hispanic Scholar Recognition Program for her exceptional academic promise.  Stephanie Hasselkus received this award in recognition of her outstanding performance on the qualifying 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

Stephanie was named by the College Board as a Scholar in their National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program along with 7,000 academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT® their junior year. In order to be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic.  Each year NHRP identifies approximately 7,000 of the highest-scoring students from a nationwide total of 250,000 high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT and designated themselves as Hispanic. The nationwide selection also includes students from Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and U.S. citizens attending international and APO schools.

As a member of the 17 member Class of 2020 and All Saints fifth graduating class, Hasselkus is a member of the elite club of All Saints High School students to earn Scholar status by the College Board in the school’s short eight-year history.  All Saints 2019 graduate Conrad Small was named as a 2019 Commended Scholar.  In 2018, All Saints had three students recognized: 2018 graduates Natalie Chaudhuri and Colten Cannon were named 2018 National Merit Finalists while 2018 graduate Sarah Going was named as a 2018 Commended Scholar in addition Cannon was named as a National Hispanic Scholar.  These All Saints students scored among the highest Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) scores in Texas.

Hayden Hillin

Patriot Spotlight

Hayden Hillin

Seventh Grader Hayden Hillin (shown here in the blue shirt) is being recognized today for his nurturing spirit.  Hayden can be found many days volunteering in the concession stand at Patriot basketball games.  Recently he was called to action to help out his co-worker who happened to be the adult supervisor in the concession stand at the time.   The roles quickly changed when the supervisor accidently burnt her arm on the popcorn maker.  Hayden didn’t miss a beat!  He quickly found the first aid kit and went to work locating the appropriate cream for burns.  He was very kind and thoughtful.

This is an excellent example of living out the All Saints Way.  Hayden didn’t just stand by and watch, but jumped in to help!  Hayden, thank you for your heart to volunteer and for setting a wonderful example for all of us.

If you have a story that demonstrates one of our Patriot family members living out the All Saints Way, please share it with Cindy Taylor @ ctaylor@allsaintsschool.org.

Senior Night Honorees

Last night five seniors were honored for their dedication to their chosen winter sports at the Winter Senior Night. Each of their coaches told how the senior athletes had impacted their team, their sport, and All Saints. The tribute ended as each senior also spoke about their experiences at All Saints.

Ellyn Brashear was honored as a four-year cheerleader. She is the only senior on the squad. Cheer coach Dee Paone said Ellyn is the rock that lead the squad this year and was a tremendous help to her as a first-year coach. Her parents are Jennifer and Robert Brashear.

Elise Headrick was recognized as the manager for the Varsity Girls Basketball team. Girls Basketball Coach Kyle Simons said he had to persuade her to be the manager this year and he is so glad he did. He said she not only took care of her managerial duties, but also worked out and played with the team everyday in practice. Her parents are Suzan and Jeff Headrick.

Jackson Janes was honored as four-year starter on the Varsity Boys Basketball team. Coach Robert Brashear recalled their first meeting many years ago when Jackson was in the first grade.  He shared how much he has enjoyed watching him grow into the wonderful young man he is today.  Robert described Jackson as a great athlete and tremendous player as well as a great person. His parents are Caroline and Jason Janes.

Anthony Paone was recognized for his success as an All Saints swimmer. He is the TAPPS 2A North Texas Regional Runner Up in the 200m and 500m Freestyle race and will compete February 5 in the TAPPS 2A State Championship. He is the defending TAPPS 2A State Champion 500 Freestyle. His parents are Deana and Ralph Paone.

Ryan Tucker was recognized as a member of the Varsity Boys Basketball team. Coach Robert Brashear praised Ryan for his great personality and said that Ryan is a friend to everyone. He also praised Ryan for taking up basketball just a couple of years ago and improving rapidly into a great player. His parents are Valerie and Tim Tucker.

PATRIOTS ROCK OUT…

Fourth Grade students Gurvir Gill and Andrew Hull are taking their musical talents to the big stage!  Last weekend, Gurvir and Andrew performed in front of a packed crowd at Charley B’s.  It was a real live “gig” for these young artists.

Andrew plays the bass guitar and Gurvir is currently taking voice and drum lessons along with teaching himself to play the bass guitar! Both boys spend one night each week in private lessons along with an evening that they rehearse with their band, the Battlestar Galactica.
