erizar
Explanation:
erizar el pelo, como cuando "se nos ponen los pelos de punta", porque nos asusta algo.
Si está en un tono imperativo, puede ser:
"¡Erízate el pelo!" o "¡Erízalo!"
Me imagino que es una de las actividades que hacen los estudiantes en el Día de Espíritu Escolar ¿verdad? Si es así , por acá lo nombran "El día del pelo loco".

Espero le ayude en su traducción.
Buena suerte y saludos de Oso ¶:^)

Oso,

I'm starting to wonder if you live in my school district?
;-)You are exactly right. We're holding a pelo loco day.

Thanks so much. I volunteered to translate this letter for our parent teacher organization. I do much better from Spanish to English! I appreciate all your help!
