Golden Sower Club

The Grace Abbott Golden Sower Club & Quiz Bowl Team are open to all Abbott 4th and 5th graders. Students can choose to participate in one or both parts. Please see Mrs. Cryer if you have any questions about either club.

Golden Sower Club -  This club will begin meeting in January (Times and Dates TBD) to discuss and participate in activities involving the 10 different chapter book nominees for this school year's Golden Sower Chapter Book Nominees. While it would be beneficial to have read the book being discussed, students are welcome to come even if they have not. 

Abbot Quiz Bowl Team  This extension of the Golden Sower Club provides 4th and 5th grade students who have read all 10 Chapter Book Nominees to compete in teams against other Millard elementary students.  To be a member of our team, you must read ALL 10 books and receive a passing score on the 10 quizzes posted below by March 15th. (You may usr the book and have two chances if needed.)  This will allow our team groups to be formed and be prepared in advance of the competition which will be held after school on April 16th at Ezra Elementary.
