A fan of reading about history and adventure, Cris Gomez-Ramos, a fifth grade student at Buford Senior Academy, has been named Reader of the Week. 

Cris’ teachers are Mrs. Currie and Mrs. Gulisano and his favorite genre is historical fiction, while his favorite books are part of the Big Nate book series, a daily comic strip by Lincoln Peirce that began publication in 1991. The comic strip follows an 11-year-old boy and his friends in sixth grade, and Cris said he enjoys the comedy. 

“Cris enjoys reading graphic novels with lots of adventure,” said Sara Blankenship, media specialist at Buford Senior Academy. “He’s a well rounded reader who enjoys a good adventure book, but also a bit about history.” 

Cris has three siblings and is a fan of the game of soccer.

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.
