Pig Day 2020

Pig Day

Thank you to Misty Deeds for being the “Head Hog” in this year’s Pig Day festivities.  Most ladies might not like that title, but at All Saints, it’s a compliment.  There are three things that we know about Misty… she can really lead a strong pig race, she can multitask with the best of us, and she can make a great bowl of chili!  Did you know that in the three years that we have held the Chili Cook-Off, Misty has won or been recognized in the top three every year.  Thank you Misty for a great day, and to all of the parent and student volunteers, especially our eighth grade class.  Oink.  Oink.


We are currently in the days of Lent.  Lent is a season of repentance, fasting, and self-reflection. All of this happens with the knowledge of God’s love and grace. Lent is a time in which we are encouraged to be intentional with God, with ourselves, and with each other. We can look at our lives and see where we are in our relationship with God. Please know that you are welcome to join us any morning in chapel.

Please remember that as a school community, we are supporting Saint Benedict’s Chapel during this Lent season.  Saint Benedict’s Chapel offers free meals and spiritual support for Lubbock’s poor and homeless.  Families are asked to bring items to fill hygiene bags through April 8.

Peace, Chaplain Paige

Patriot Spotlight

Polly Sims ’01 and Kin Sims ’03

Alum Visit

Polly and Kin Sims – 2020

All Patriots past and present share a special connection with our school and with each other.  Such is the story of two young alums who were in town recently and decided to drive by the All Saints campus. They found it open for a weekend Robotics Meet.

Patriot alums, Polly Sims ’01 and her brother Kin Sims ’03, connected with Dr. Penny Carpenter and asked if they could tour the campus.  They enjoyed reminiscing as they found their handprints in the concrete around the courtyard tables, saw the flagpole where they’d had flag duty, and the gym where they had played basketball.  It was exciting to learn about recent additions to the campus such as the new high school and the current middle school expansion. Fond memories were shared about special teachers such as Sherry Fewin, Missy Franklin, and Glenn Davis, who made a lasting impression on them.  Polly and Kin shared about the gratitude they feel for the education they received and the foundation it provided for their future.

Polly received an engineering degree from Princeton University as well as a law degree from SMU.  She currently practices law in Houston.  Kin received a degree from William and Mary and serves as a church minister in Philadelphia.  All Saints is proud to know alumni like Polly and Kin who are leading and serving in such wonderful ways!

Last Saturday, March 7, All Saints hosted the GEAR 2020 Trial Meet. GEAR (Get Excited About Robotics) is coordinated by staff and students from the TTU Whitacre College of Engineering. This is the second year All Saints has participated with 28 students, seven elementary teams and two middle school teams.

This year’s challenge, Gone Tubing, places students in a simulated water park. The tasks require students to design, build and program a robot to collect various color-coded tubes (plastic shower curtain rings) and deliver them to a collection bin and/or stack them on color-coordinated posts.

Schools from all over the region visited All Saints for the Trial Meet, including Muleshoe, Levelland ISD, Haskell ISD, and Post ISD. The event had two divisions: Elementary and Middle School. The elementary division consisted of 65 teams of 3-5 students each from 17 different schools. The middle school division consisted of 60 teams of 3-5 students each, representing 15 schools.

In addition, members of the Iron Patriots, our high school robotics team, operated the concession stand as a fundraiser for their program. Robotics Club Co-coach, Mrs. Priya Gill said, “It was definitely a success and we plan to do it again at the GEAR Final Meet, Saturday, April 4.”  Dr. Penny Carpenter adds, “Although not as many as an All Saints pep rally, the stands did have a large number of spectators. In all, I would say we had close to 500 visitors that day.  For many, it was their first visit to All Saints.  It served as a great opportunity to showcase our great school and a fun competition for our Robotics team.” Dr. Carpenter serves as Director of Instruction and Technology at All Saints.

If you have any questions about the All Saints GEAR program, want to volunteer at the next meet, or want to know how to involve your student, feel free to contact either Mrs. Priya Gill ( or Dr. Penny Carpenter (

This year’s Chili Cook Off was a huge success.  With over 30 contestants participating, the winner was a tough one to pick.  This year’s event fell on the same day as the TAPPS 2A State basketball tournament.  The students, faculty, and parents enjoyed chili while watching Patriot basketball on the jumbo screen in Kirby Commons.  A great combination for our Patriot family: a big win for our high school boys and chili with big flavor!

Congratulations to our 2020 Chili Cook Off Winners:
1st place – Brittany Jones (Parent to Ella-Rose Jones)
2nd place- Misty Deeds
3rd place- Becky Addington

Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser
A big THANK YOU to all who came out on Feb. 24 and supported the junior spaghetti dinner fundraiser for prom and project graduation.  The night was a big success with juniors serving, waiting tables and auctioning off their time and talents in the silent auction.  A special thanks goes out to Carrie Schlehuber who coordinated the event and to her and her husband, Rob, for hosting and working the event with juniors; plus, Dee Paone, who helped with the set up for the event.



High School Service Day
Last week high school students participated in a service project at the Salvation Army and the South Plains Food.  This has been an ongoing service opportunity throughout the school year and has continued to be a meaningful and engaging way for high school students to make a difference in the lives of others in need.




College Tour Trip
Recently, the sophomores and juniors were able to tour some private and public colleges in Texas.  Students were given official tours at five college campuses (Southwestern, UT, St. Edwards, Texas A&M and Baylor), able to experience college dining, toured the George H. W. Bush Library in College Station while enjoying some other fun evening events.  This opportunity gave the students a good understanding of college life and what to look for and questions to ask when touring additional colleges on their own.




The All Saints boys high school varsity lost in the TAPPS 2A state championship game 38-43 to #1 seeded Huntsville Alpha Omega Academy.  The Patriots defeated Dallas First Baptist 82-49 in the state semi-finals to advance to the championship game.  It was the fourth time in five years that the All Saints boys basketball team had competed in the state tournament.  What a great run by some committed young men over the years!  Several players were honored as members of the TAPPS 2A state all-tournament team. Congratulations to the following young men: Ash Bumstead, Jackson Janes, Luke Maples and Britton Stoffregen 

The coaching staff would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the wonderful support and send-off that the All Saints Cheerleaders, faculty and the All Saints community gave them.  It was one of our most spirited send-offs to date and the team was sent to Waco feeling loved and supported.  A special thank you to Cheer Coaches:  Dee Paone, Angie Lane, Jaime Whittenburg, and Somer Jaynes.  Well done, ladies!

The All Saints High school track team opened their competitive season with a good showing at the Lubbock Trinity High School meet.  The girls team placed third overall in a very competitive meet.  The high school team will compete again this Thursday, March 12 in Tahoka at the Bulldog Relays.  This meet was originally scheduled for Friday, but it was moved to Thursday due to likely storms.  The middle school & high school meets at Tahoka will both be run on Thursday.

The All Saints track is continuing to take form.  We recently received a special delivery of beautiful All Saints hurdles.  The track and field team helped unload and put the hurdles together.  It was a fun day, and the kids were all smiles… especially our hurdlers!

All Saints high school tennis continues to compete well and will play again Thursday, March 12th at the SPECHEA Tournament in Levelland.  The all-day event will be the last tournament before the TAPPS 2A North Regional championships on Thursday, March 25th in Ft. Worth.
