Spirit Rock

The Spirit Rock at Blue Heron Elementary is an awesome opportunity to celebrate your child and support our school!

Reserve the rock for $20 for one day and paint it with your personalized celebratory message for the whole school to see!


  • Wish your favorite student a Happy Birthday!

  • Send a THANK YOU to your favorite teachers!

  • Wish everyone Good Luck on an upcoming test.

  • Share a positive, motivational message.

All proceeds collected for the Spirit Rock will fund programs for our Blue Heron Elementary students.


Use our SignUp Genius to reserve the day you want. Please consider using environmentally friendly paint when painting the rock.

NOTE: Your 24-hour rental starts at 4 pm the day prior to your rental. If your child’s birthday is August 15th, reserve August 15th and you may begin painting AFTER 4 pm on August 14th.


Payment is due when the reservation is made. Your reservation could be removed if payment is not received in a timely manner. This is to keep it fair for all BH Families.


What is the Spirit Rock?

Parents, students, and 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!

Where is the rock?

The Spirit Rock is located in front of the garden near the “Kiss and Go lane” in front of the school.

How can I rent the rock?

Sign up here for the day(s) you want the Spirit Rock to be viewed. You may begin decorating the Spirit Rock at 4:00 p.m. the day BEFORE your assigned day. Your message will be displayed until 4:00 p.m. the next day.

How much does it cost to rent the rock and how do I pay?

The rock rental is $20. 100% of your donation goes to Blue Heron PTA. Payments must be made at the time of sign-up.

What supplies do I need?

You will typically need plastic or paper to cover the ground cover while you paint, a can 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. 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.

What can I reserve the rocks for?

You can reserve the rocks for anything!! The rock is a fun way to spread any kind of positive message. Please note that profanity and political messages are not permitted. You may sign up for more than one day per year, however, you may not reserve the Spirit Rock for more than 2 consecutive days.

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. All payments and reservations are non-refundable for any reason (changed your mind, inclement weather, etc.). However, if you decide you do not want your date, you can offer it to a friend or sell it to another family.

Can the PTA paint the rock for me?

Blue Heron 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.

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.
