Tomorrow, we’ll also be announcing a fun October opportunity . . .

Choose a Costume for Quaver!

That’s right, our fearless leader isn’t sure what to wear for his annual trick-or-treating extravaganza. He’s been a lot of different characters in the last few years, but we need your help to pick the perfect new costume for Quaver!

Here’s how it works:

  • Ask your students for suggestions for the perfect costume.
  • Leave your ideas in the comments below – as many as you like!
  • Next week, we’ll tell you the 5 Finalists, and ask you to vote for your favorite!
  • At the end of the month, Quaver will reveal the winning costume by coming to the Webinar set in your chosen ensemble!

And the best part is the prize:

The class that suggests the winning costume will win a Skype visit with Quaver – in costume!

Throughout the month we’ll also be sharing tips for dressing up as Quaver for Halloween and some opportunities to win other Quaver prizes!

So, let’s get started! What do you and your students want to see Quaver wear for Halloween?
