Morp has consistently been a sleepless night full of exhausted and happy faces. Unfortunately, it was announced March 1, that the event would be completely scratched from the itinerary, and the next major school function will be prom.

The cancellation of one of the most iconic functions was bound to shock students. The news came about rather unexpectedly and turned heads.

“At first I was confused on why it was being cancelled,” Judy Samuel (‘18) said. “I had never been before and was extremely looking forward to it.”

Not only were participants upset, but a large question arose when the event was cancelled. Since Morp served primarily as a  fundraiser for the prom budget, ASB was searching for alternative ways to raise money.

“We will be hosting a boys versus girls volleyball game to replace the funds and raise school spirit,” ASB President Peter Ferguson (‘17) said. “Also, we are planning on selling water and sodas at the open house.”

Prom is a dance exclusive to upperclassmen, so the stakes were raised for finding an appropriate replacement that is inclusive to the whole school.

“We are working toward a Knott’s [Berry Farm] trip on April 22,” spirit commissioner Jordan Heatherly (‘18) said. “We just need to figure out the bus driver situation, and we will be good to go.”

ASB has released an official statement announcing the replacement for Morp. The school will be heading to Knotts Berry Farm instead of heading out all night. They also will be doing major fundraisers and working their hardest to appease the upsets of Morp’s untimely cancellation.
