TBE Spirit Rock

Reserve the Rock now and let’s keep it changing!

*Just $15 per day*

100% of your donation goes to TBE


How can I rent the rock?

Use the Sign-up Genius links at the bottom of this page and reserve the actual date you want.  You may begin painting at 4:00 pm on the day prior to your reservation.


How do I pay?

Payment is due within 3 days after making the reservation.  Please access the link HERE to pay with a credit card.  Or turn in a check to the front office made out to TBE PTO with a note that says Spirit Rock and the date you are reserving.  If you fail to pay by the third day, your reservation will be canceled, deleted and opened back up to the public.  All payments and reservations are nonrefundable.


What can I reserve the Rock for?

Anything!  Your child’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!


Can the PTO paint the rock for me?

No.  It is your responsibility to paint the rock or find someone to paint it for you.  You are also responsible for providing all materials for decorating the rock.  Exterior house paint and spray paint work well.  You can even use acrylic paint found at Michaels for letters or more intricate designs.    Please clean up after yourself and do not leave any paint or materials on or around the rock.


What if I reserve the rock and the weather is bad?

In the event of inclement weather, you may towel dry and still paint the rock.  Or if you’d rather not, you may revisit the calendar and pick the next available date for a substitution.  We apologize we are unable to make refunds.


Please make sure to note on your personal calendar the day(s) you have reserved. Trailblazer is not responsible for missed or forgotten reservations.
