What is a Spirit Rock?
A Spirit Rock is an opportunity to share exciting events with our school community by painting your own message. You can reserve the rocks for anything!! A student’s birthday, thank a teacher or staff member, congratulatory events, good luck on competitions and tournaments, recognizing milestones. The rock is a fun way to spread any kind of positive message. Please note that profanity, political messages, and business advertisements are not permitted.
Spirit Rock paintings MUST be in good taste. LAE Staff and PTO will regularly monitor the Spirit Rock to ensure that paintings fall within the above-established guidelines. LAE has the right to remove any painting deemed inappropriate by school administration without notice to those who painted the rock.
How much does it cost to rent the rock?
PAYMENT IS DUE AT THE TIME OF RESERVATION. Daily rates are $20. You may reserve multiple days consecutively. 100% of your donation goes to Leman PTO.
If you'd like to paint the rock to celebrate a teacher or other staff member, the rock can be reserved for zero cost. Please email email@example.com and we can help set up your reservation.
What supplies do I need?
Plan on using 1-2 cans of spray paint for the base coat and then additional paint for the design. You will need to bring drop cloths or garbage bags to protect the ground from overspray and may also want to bring painters tape, scissors, templates, or brushes to aid in the design as well. Please make sure that any nearby cars will not be hit by overspray!!!
ONLY the Rock may be painted. DO NOT paint the sidewalk or the landscape rocks or any other material surrounding the Rock. The individual or group will be held financially responsible for cleaning and/or repair costs associated with violation of this policy. Anyone painting the Rock must leave the area in clean condition. Remove all paint materials and litter from the site and be sure the paint is disposed of properly off-campus.
ONLY the side of the rock facing the school may be painted. We love the designs that have been done front and back but it makes more work for the person painting after you to have to buy extra paint to cover your design.
The individual or group painting the rock assumes liability for any individual or member of the group who may be injured and/or incur clothing or other personal property damage. Please be kind to our environment and recycle empty paint cans, etc.
How can I rent the rock(s)?
It’s simple, just click on the month above and then the date(s) you want to reserve. Every calendar day is listed. You are welcome to rent on a weekend day or school holiday, but please pay attention to the school calendar if you prefer to rent on a school day. If a day is not listed, its reserved for a school or PTO purpose.
You may begin painting at 4 pm on the day prior to your reservation. So if you reserve September 10, you can begin painting on September 9 at 4 pm. Please respect the family before you and do not paint earlier than 4 pm. If weather or something else prevents you from painting the night before, you can paint during the school day if you are extra careful about paint overspray and nearby parked cars.
What if I reserve the rock and the weather is bad?
The rock can be towel dried and the paint will adhere even in the rain and or snow if you want to brave the elements. If painting in the rain or snow is not your thing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you change your reservation.
Can the PTO paint the rock for me?
The PTO is not responsible for painting the rock. You can find someone to paint it for you, but painting the rock is fun, and we are sure that no matter what you do, the person you are painting it for will love it.
