Spirit Rock

How Does it Work?

The Spirit Rock at Ocean Bay Middle is provided by the PTO and creates an awesome opportunity for you to send special sentiments to your child or your friends.  You can reserve the OBM Spirit Rock for $10.00 a day.  Your reservation begins at 4:00pm the day PRIOR to your actual date (this will give you time to paint the rock) and will end at 3:59pm (to give the next day's reservation to prepare).
​Payment must be submitted to reserve your date by using the Spirit Rock link within sign up genius.

Spirit Rock Regulations
  1. First check date availability - Click on events tab on the site menu above and then on calendar in the drop down menu. Go to the date you want to reserve the rock to see if it is available. If it is already reserved, it will say "Rock Reserved". If the calendar square does not say reserved, then it is available for your rental reservation.

  2. Next pay for rock reservation - Go to the Spirit Shop tab above and add the Spirit Rock Reservation to your cart, then continue to follow the Pay Pal prompts for payment. Be sure to include the date that you want to reserve the rock in the comment section.

  3. Confirm reservation - You will receive an email confirmation from our Spirit Rock Coordinator once payment is received and the date is confirmed available. Your rock reservation is not guaranteed until you receive this email. Reservations are on a first come, first serve basis and it can take up to 24 hours to update the calendar. Do not paint the rock if you have not received a confirmation email.

  4. Paint rock - You may begin decorating the spirit rock at 4:00 PM the day BEFORE you sign up. Similarly, the person who signs up for the next day may begin decorating the rock at 4:00 PM on the last day you have reserved. Therefore, spirit rock reservations run from 4:00 PM the day BEFORE you sign up through 3:59 PM the day of your sign up. 

  5. Although you may sign up for multiple dates throughout the year, reservations cannot last more than 2 consecutive days. Any reservation request lasting more than 2 consecutive days will be deleted, refunded and opened back up to the public. 

  6. "You Paint It" Spirit rock reservation fees are $10.00 per day. All proceeds collected for the spirit rock will fund programs for our OBM students.  

  7. Payment is due at the time of making the reservation and is 1st come 1st served. All payments and reservations are non-refundable for any reason (changed your mind, inclement weather, school closing, etc). However, if you decide you do not want your date, you can offer it to a friend or sell it to another family.

  8. You are responsible for providing all materials for decorating the spirit rock. You are expected to ensure the area around the spirit rock remains clean, free of trash and debris. All spirit rock decorations must meet the same handbook standard we would expect of any school sponsored sign, attire, events etc. You should ensure that paint is not left on the road, curb or grass. You may wish to bring a drop cloth. Also, please be kind to our environment and recycle your empty cans!

  9. A reminder e-mail will be sent the day before your reservation date via OBMPTO.spiritrock@gmail.com. Please make sure to note on your personal calendar, the day(s) you have reserved your school’s Spirit Rock.  OBM is not responsible for missed or forgotten reservations.

​Helpful Tips

Wear old clothes! Wall paint or spray paint will probably stick to the rock best. It may take 2-4 cans of spray paint to make a base coat. Spray paint may be harder to avoid the grass, but may dry faster than latex paint. You are responsible for purchasing and applying all paint. What you don’t use this year can be stored for use next year. Don't forget to respect our school grounds and the environment!
