Rent the Spirit Rock:

A $20 donation will reserve you a day to paint the rock. ALL proceeds will directly benefit our school. Please review the following guidelines for reserving the Spirit Rock:

Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis.

  • One family, group or organization per day may paint the ROCK, unless you have paid for several days in succession.
    • Daily cost for the reservation is $20. Payment is due when the reservation is made. Please turn in a check to the front office made out to Heritage PTO with a note that says SPIRIT ROCK and the date you are reserving.
  • Reserve the date you want! Once reserved you have the rock for 24 hours, from 4:00 pm on the afternoon prior to your reserved day until 4:00 p.m. the reserved day. (If your child's birthday is on July 2 - book July 2. Then at 4:00 p.m. on July 1st, you may begin painting)
  • It is your responsibility to paint the rock or find someone to paint it for you.
  • The family or organization must supply paint, rollers, brushes and appropriate clothing for painting the rock. All supplies and the area around the rock must be left as you found it. Please clean up after yourself and do not leave any paint or materials on or around the rock or on school property. Any damage to school property as a result of painting the rock will be taken care of by the family or group that reserved the rock for that day.
  • Plan to use 1-2 cans of spray paint as the base coat. More will be used if the color you are covering is dark or bright. Try purchasing the 0.75 cent acrylic paint at Michaels for easy to paint letters. Stencils, scribbles or whatever your heart desires.
  • In the event of inclement weather, a family or organization may revisit the calendar and choose an open date for a substitution. This may or may not be the next school day as that may already be reserved. We apologize we are unable to make refunds.
  • We will not allow any bullying, profanity, obscenity or derogatory language. Please refrain from any political or discriminatory remarks. No offensive art please as it may violate HRCA rules or the DCSD Code of Conduct. If there is any question to the art, wording or symbols painted on the rock, the Principal of Heritage Elementary reserves the right to remove/repaint the rock without notice.
