Spirit Rock

Spirit Rock — Newer and Easier Reservations!

**Click here to reserve the Spirit Rock online!**

What is a Spirit Rock?

A Spirit Rock is a wonderful way to publicize birthdays, accomplishments, celebrations, upcoming school events, well-wishes or congratulatory messages by using your creativity and a bit of paint to decorate the rock in front of our school! It is also a fundraiser! Money raised from the Spirit Rock goes towards supporting the various school activities and school projects hosted by your PTO.

How do I paint the Spirit Rock?

Either at Meet The Teacher or online thereafter, reserve and pay for your day! Your day will begin at 4pm the day prior to allow you time to paint the rock. Spray paint tends to work best and dry the quickest. Expect to use at least two cans of spray paint for the base coat. Be sure to bring your own supplies and clean up the area after you’ve finished. You can access the guidelines here. The next morning all of RVES will get to enjoy the latest creation!

See some examples below:






Collect your can tabs for a great cause!
