Morse teachers participated in the annual Week of Consciousness through teacher challenges during lunch on Thursday, Feb. 15 in the amphitheatre.

Teachers Omar Garcia, Sarah Thomas, and Ellen Bergan, ended the event with a pie in the face, thrown by fellow Morse students.

The pep rally began with English teacher Paula Johnes and her T-Rex fight with a lucky student, senior Angelo Gozon.“I think we really hyped up the crowd,” Gozon said. “It was a good start to the pep rally.”

Mathematics teacher Alex Powell channeled his inner Britney Spears and shaved his head. The money raised will go to the International Rescue Committee to aid refugees from all over the world.

“He did it for a good cause,” said senior Sharmaine Bartolome. “But I still can’t believe he did it.”

Teachers Nani Schott and Rex Calvin participated in the condiment challenge, having to guess what they ate. The loser, Calvin, had to eat a spoonful of a mixture of the condiments.

Next, Calvin, Johnes, and art teacher Gretchen Weidner participated in the mystery bag challenge. Each teacher put their hand in a paper bag and had to guess what was in it.

Mathematics teachers Christine Kiyama and Stacey Olivieri, with physics teacher Carlie Nemecek, rapped to Big Poppa by The Notorious B.I.G., changing the lyrics to better suit their theme.

“We see some students tonight that should be getting their grades up,” Nemecek rapped.

This year, many teachers showed their support for the annual Week of Consciousness through their participation in teacher challenges, as well as raising the money to reach each goal for each challenge.
