Hope each of you are enjoying the last few days of summer at the beach, pool, and of course getting fitter, faster, and stronger! Tomorrow Soph, Jr, Sr have orientation and Thursday freshman have their orientation. There are many items that are suggested that you purchase at orientation, you do not need to buy PE clothes but we do recommend the ASB sticker as it gets students into all home sporting events free and the monies from the ASB sticker support our athletics programs. We also encourage a donation to our transportation fund which you can find on the Buena on-line store https://webstores.activenetwork.com/school-software/buena_high_school_on/index.php?l=product_list&c=68
New this year from our athletic department is a request (mandatory?) that each team work at the Buena Bistro (stadium snack bar) for one football game. This is in lieu of an additional athletic department wide fundraiser. The monies from the Bistro will help offset the cost of our entry fees.
We have been assigned to work this THURSDAY for the Frosh-JV games. (late notice I know- coaches found out today) We are needing 15 athletes and 4 adults to work starting at 3 pm until ? This is a new thing and the administration / A.D. are still ironing things out. I know that we can do a great job in the Bistro with all of our experience with Boogie Nights and other races. Please email Coach Burns email@example.com or Coach Torres firstname.lastname@example.org if you are able to work the Bistro. Or tell us at practice.
Our first race is on Aug 25, the Hoka One One Postal 2 mile, at Buena High School. The first race is at 7 pm. More details to following….

Our thoughts go out to our Buena Family, our community and those who have lost their homes in the wildfire. We are very thankful for all the firefighters, law enforcement and first responders (many who came from other areas to help in this time of need) who have been working hard to keep our community safe and continue to do so.
The Buena High Track & Field tryouts that were to begin this past Wednesday were obviously postponed and have yet to be rescheduled. VUSD Students are now slated to resume classes on Wednesday the 13th. After that we will be able to announce details on tryouts.
Tomorrow both the boys and girls teams are meeting at Buena High School Circle Parking Lot at 7 am to car pool to Sulphur Mountain Rd. We will be running out and back on the trail. Parents are welcome to join us – bike, run, or walk.
Thank you to everyone that helped at the 4th of July 5k /10k race. Our boys and girls teams earned $1200 that morning :). Many of the competitors complimented our team on their hard work, cheering, and helpfulness. Awesome! I take great pride that our team is so well liked and respected by our community members!
We have 2 more Boogie Nights 5K races- Wed July 12 and Wed July 19th.
