Carsyn Hunter is an avid reader who has exceeded her advanced reading goal all three quarters of the school year, making her an excellent selection for Reader of the Week. 

Carsyn is in third grade and her teachers are Mrs. Humble and Mrs. Wilcox. 

Carsyn’s favorite books are the Junie B. Jones series by her favorite author, Barbara Parks. She enjoys the series because Junie B. has a unique way of doing things. Carsyn also enjoys the Heidi Heckelbeck series by Wanda Coven and Priscilla Burris because of the cool things Heidi does with potions and spells. 

Carsyn’s family includes her dad, Edward Hunter Jr., mom Cassie Hunter, sister Edisis, who is 18, and brother Edward III, 14. 

Carsyn loves to play sports, particularly softball, where she plays third base and shortstop, and basketball, where she plays low block and wing. She enjoys reading and writing in spare time and she’s flexible enough to do splits and backbends! 

Carsyn is a very confident young lady. Just sitting and talking to her you can see that she is well-versed and way beyond her third grade years,” said Lana NIx, media specialist for Buford Academy. “Carsyn has a sweet smile and a very kind heart.” 

Congratulations, Carsyn, and keep up the reading! 

The media specialists at the Buford Senior Academy and Buford Academy select the Buford City Schools Reader of the Week.  Buford students grades first through fifth have a chance at being named the Reader of the Week. In addition to appearing online and in print, the Reader of the Week receives a voucher to Stars and Strikes for all of their hard work.

The Buford City Schools Reader of the Week spotlight is made possible by the generosity of Peoples Bank & Trust, 1899 Buford Highway, Buford GA 30518, (770) 932-1900.
