What is a Spirit Rock?

Parents, Students & Staff have the opportunity to "Rent the Rock" to recognize a student's birthday, show school spirit, thank or recognize a teacher or staff member, congratulatory events, etc. It is a great way to spread positive messages and increase excitement in our community!

​A spirit rock is typically located in the front of a school or church in a highly-visible area. It is permanently placed in a grassy area, upon which people can use spray paint to write their message. A Spirit Rock is a wonderful way to publicize birthdays, accomplishments, celebrations, upcoming school events, well-wishes or congratulatory messages.

FAQ'S

Q:  How can I rent the rock?
A:  It’s simple, just go to this Sign-Up Genius link and reserve the actual date you want. You may begin painting at 4pm on the day prior to your reservation.

Q:  How much does it cost to rent the rock and how do I pay?
A:  $20. 100% of your donation goes to Eldorado. Payments are accepted online or by check payable to Eldorado PTO. Checks must be dropped off to the front office prior to the rental date; please write your name & date in the memo.

Q;  What supplies do I need?
A:  You will typically need two cans of spray paint for the base coat and additional paint for your design. For more intricate designs, craft paint, foam brushes and even stencils work great. The picture at the bottom used a drop cloth (a must!), two cans of spray paint (yellow), stencils, a foam brush, one bottle of cheap blue acrylic craft paint (blue letters), and another bottle of cheap gold acrylic craft paint (panther paw marks and the smiley face). I also used a can of clear sealer spray paint because this design was meant to last two weeks and I didn't want to run the risk of any paint running.

>> You can also use our supplies! << We can offer stencils, drop cloth, paints, and brushes; we just ask that you replace anything if it can't be reused by someone else (e.g. a paint brush that just won't come clean). The supplies are located in the front office, so just ask our fantastic school receptionist, Jenee, for them when you're ready to paint.

Q:  What can I reserve the Rock for?
A:  You can reserve the rock 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 and political messages are obviously not permitted.

Q:  What if I reserve the rock and the weather is bad?
A:  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, revisit the calendar and pick the next available date.

Q:  Can PTO paint the rock for me?
A:  Eldorado 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.

Q:  What if the rock is already reserved on the date I want?
A:  Rock reservations are on a first come, first serve basis so make your reservations NOW!! If the date you want is already reserved, choose the next available date, either before or after.

Q:  What if I’m painting the rock and someone shows up thinking they reserved it?
A:  If this happens, please check the Sign Up Genius or contact the PTO at pto.eldorado@gmail.com.
