"They were screaming and yelling," said Lichelle Alford, principal of Buckner Performing Arts Magnet Elementary School.
Alford said school administrators were taken by surprise when H.O. Lytle stumbled into the front office more than month ago, repeating, "My heart hurts." Alford said she called 911, and dispatchers asked if she had baby aspirin. But the school had none on hand at the time. "I knew I was going right out and get baby aspirin," she said. "It was a real eye-opener for me." He was taken to Wesley Medical Center but was transferred to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Teachers collected about $300 to give to Connie Lytle to help with medical expenses, Alford said.
That student achievement would be our focal point and we weren't going to allow this to keep us from being all that we could be," said Lichelle Alford, principal.
They're going to have the same experiences we had," said Alford.

Mrs. Alford & others to "screen" initially for appropriate content
Lichelle Alford email@example.com After, much discussion by the group and careful consideration of Mrs. Alford and Mrs. Hope's belief that the ENTIRE group needed to start from a place of research and knowledge (not more of the same winging it). Mrs. Alford mentioned that the staff's focus has got to shift more to math and the upcoming assessments for grades 3, 4 & 5 (which will be done on the computer for the first time). She asked if we could also check with teachers about parent and/or MUSCL volunteers helping during math lessons. Lichelle Alford firstname.lastname@example.org There was some general discussion within the group with additional input from the Principal, Mrs. Alford. Mrs. Alford supports and communicates that she expects to have an open door policy with parents to visit the school and their child's classrooms any time. Mrs. Alford stated that she has many meetings with the staff and team leaders and made us aware that the staff is feeling anxious as well because we didn't meet the yearly progress marks the last 2 years. Lichelle Alford email@example.com Mrs. Shanks, the Pre-K teacher, (at the direction of Mrs. Alford) made a short presentation to request the remaining money to fund their "Family Connection Activities" for the school year. (A detailed hand out was given at the meeting). Mrs. Alford proposed to eliminate the clickers for now and have the PTO and school accounts both purchase 1 Smart Board each for a total of 2 of 3 originally voted on last school year. Lichelle Alford firstname.lastname@example.org Mrs. Wilson, the school psychologist, (at the direction of Mrs. Alford) made a short presentation to state her case of wanting to attend the "Creative Arts Therapy for Behaviorally Disordered Youth/Enhancing Brain Function, Emotional Regulation Through the Creative Process" being held in Wichita on 10/7 for $159. Brandy is to do a final itemization for Mrs. Alford. Mrs. Alford let everyone know that Mr. Lytle went home from the hospital today! Mrs. Alford made clear her need to purchase a significant portion of the remaining technology items our school is missing to include specifically, three sets of clickers for the 3 rd, 4th & 5th grade classes as well as the three sets of LCD projectors along with the Smart Boards. Mrs. Alford was to forward his e-mail. Mrs. Alford presented the staffing update. PTO to attend a staff meeting (Mrs. Alford will provide details later) so we can have a show of support going both ways; between PTO and staff.
