Updated Information for Reserving the HES Spirit Rocks
Effective for the 2023-2024 School Year
HES has two (2) Spirit Rocks that can be painted. The Car Rider Rock located at the Car Rider line and the Bus Rider rock located near the teacher and bus parking lot. Please consider how your child arrives and leaves school so they can see the rock. Dates do fill up quickly so be sure to request and pay ASAP. Only one person per day may reserve one of the Spirit Rocks. Once reserved, you will have that rock for 24 hours beginning at 4:00pm the day before. (For example, if you reserve a rock for August 25th, your reservation will begin at 4:00 pm on August 24th and run through 4:00 pm on August 25th.)
Cost: $10 per day (for the Spirit Rock) + $10 PTO Membership
*Please note if you are a PTO member already, additional membership is NOT required. Only one membership is required per family.
Harrisburg Elementary Spirit Rock Approval Request and Guidelines
1. Please look at the calendar HERE and see if your desired date(s) is available. You must submit your request for the spirit rock no later than 2 days prior to your reservation request. Your request is only a request and not confirmed until you receive a confirmation email from the spirit rock coordinator.
2. If the date is available, click on the Pay4School link (HERE) to process the request and pay for your date. On the pay4schoolstuff link, please select the "PTO Spirit Rock" selection. Starting immediately for the 2023-2024 school year, anyone reserving the spirit rock must be a member of the PTO. This will allow the PTO to better manage the rock by ensuring that you receive communications pertaining to the PTO and your spirit rock reservation. If you still need a PTO membership, simply click on "PTO Membership". PLEASE NOTE: all payments must be received through the Pay4School link - no cash or checks will be accepted.
3. Once submitted, you will receive an approval email confirming that you are reserved for the date(s) and rock(s) requested. If by chance there is more than one request for the same date and rock, you will be contacted by the Spirit Rock coordinator to arrange for another date to be chose. (All requests will be processed within 48 hours of receipt and in the order in which they were received.)
4. Read the Other Rules and Guidelines below before painting the rock.
You bring your own paint, the school/PTO does not supply any painting materials. Plan to have 2-3 cans of each color you will be using especially if you are painting over a dark color, you may need more.
Your reservation is for 24 hours from 4:00 p.m. the day before your reservation until 4:00 p.m. the day of your reservation. (EX. if you book the rock for 4/25/2024, then your reservation is from 4:00 p.m. on 4/24/2024 until 4:00 p.m. on 4/25/2024). Please do not paint the rock outside of your reserved time.
All rules as outlined in the LCSD student rights, responsibilities, and character development handbook and Code of Student Conduct MUST be obeyed. No exceptions. (No bullying, no profanity, obscenity, or derogatory language.)
