All Saints announced plans to celebrate the school’s 60th anniversary in style during a surprise student assembly on Monday, May 22. The event featured a birthday skit written by former All Saints teacher Mrs. Lewis and performed by an all-star cast of All Saints teachers and clergy (Fr. Juan). The Master of Ceremony was none other than Mr. Tessier, All Saints religion teacher and Director of Youth Ministry. The end of the skit featured the introduction of a surprise guest … the All Saints Eagle mascot.
