How can I rent the rock?
It’s simple, just go to our Sign Up Genius to reserve a date(s) (they are first come first serve!). You may begin painting at 4:00 pm on the day prior to your reservation. 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). The Spirit Rock you are renting is located near our school's marquee.
How much does it cost to rent the rock and how do I pay?
The rock rental is $25/day and can be reserved for 1 or more days. 100% of your donation goes to ERE PTA. Payments must be made at the time of sign up via Paypal or credit card using this link below. Assume your reservation is accepted unless notified.
What supplies do I need?
You will typically need:
3+ cans of spray paint for the base coat (if using a dark color, may need more if the background is light) and additional paint for your design
Paper towels, rags or wipes
A cup of water to clean brushes (if applicable)
Protective clothing &/or gloves to protect your hands.
Small trash bag to collect trash
For more intricate designs, craft paint, foam brushes or even stencils work great! 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.
What can I reserve the rocks for?
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. We will not allow any bullying, profanity, obscenity or derogatory language. Please refrain from any political, religious or discriminatory remarks. If there is any question to the wording or symbols painted on the rock, we reserve the right to remove/repaint the rock without notice.
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, revisit the calendar and pick the next available date! We apologize we are unable to make refunds.
Can the PTA paint the rock for me?
ERE PTA 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, so give it a shot. The rock is LARGE. You can choose to paint only 1 side or all of the sides or share it with another family!
What if the rock is already reserved on the date I want?
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.
