Conner Tu, a first-grader at Buford Academy whose teacher is Mrs. Harvell, is already reading chapter books, making him an excellent choice for Reader of the Week!

Conner, who is 6, loves mysteries and he recently finished the “Calendar Mysteries” series by author Ron Roy and is starting Roy’s “A to Z Mysteries.” His favorite book in the “Calendar Mysteries” series is “August Acrobat” because his birthday is in August.

In addition to reading on an advanced level, Conner already knows his multiplication and division facts. Very impressive for a first grader!

“This young man is so full of personality and has an amazing positive attitude,” said Buford Academy Media Specialist Lana Nix. “Conner has such a strong self-confidence about himself. We are always so excited to see Conner and his smile in the media center.”

Conner’s parents are Frank and Thao, and he has two sisters, 3-year-old Violet and 1-year-old Norah. Conner loves visiting E. E. Robinson Park to play on the playground and his favorite activity is the slide. He also loves playing pretend soccer with Violet.

Congratulations, Conner, on being named Reader of the Week! Keep up the good work!
