District 13 FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) members along with 307 other District 13 FBLA members attended the District 13 Leadership Day at the Hampton Greenhouse and Corn Maze in Marshfield, Missouri on Monday, October 10, 2016. These students had the opportunity to attend a business presentation about what it takes to run a dairy farm turned greenhouse, then turned corn maze. The District officers reviewed District 13 meeting and competition information. The students also went through the corn maze, enjoyed bonfires and s’mores, and completed scavenger hunt and teamwork activities. This meeting was a great experience for all the members of Buffalo FBLA and all District 13 FBLA schools!
Heart and Character
On Saturday, September 24th the Middle School cross country team had an awesome showing of heart and character on the cross country course at Hermitage.  On this largest, hottest, and hilliest race of their season, our bison runners endured a tough race against some very strong competition.  When the dust cleared our boys had placed 5th over all out of 16 teams (which was 3rd in the large school division). Medaling as a top 30 finisher was Ethan Casteel (20th out of 161).  At the conclusion of the Middle School girls race, our lady bison finished 1st in the large school division as well as overall with 7 teams that were scored. Medaling as top 30 finishers were Jacey Worely (2nd place), Julia Horinek (11th), and Katie Waters (14th) out of a total of 90 competitors.  Be super proud of each of our athletes and the determination they displayed on the course.
