COMMUNITY

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! We hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas break getting re-charged for the new year! 2014 will bring lots of new adventures for students at All Saints! Adventures are only a few weeks away for parents, as well, as we look forward to our All Saints Parent Association's 2nd ANNUAL FETE! Line up the babysitter and mark your calendars to join us for a memorable night, sure to create lasting memories for you and provide lasting gifts to our school.

SPIRITUALITY

Special thanks to our entire community for their GENEROUS donations to the E.J. Empty Stocking Fund totaling $1,317.00!!! Many of our students performed extra chores, gave up their allowance, or exchanged marble party points for money to contribute to this fund. We collected the donations during our final Holy Communion service for 2013. Check out photos below of this special chapel service.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Students and teachers at All Saints didn't show any signs of slowing down right before the holidays, as many classrooms were still striving for excellence in their academic endeavors right up until the last day before dismissal. Check out the Smileboxes below of two examples of hard-working students: 6th Graders using different apps on their iPads to help document classifications of objects in Science Lab, and 4th Grade presenting their Christmas Around the World projects to Lower School students. GREAT JOB!
