Painting the Spirit Rock
The rock is located at the front of the school. When facing the front doors, it is to the left of the school sign, on the grassy section between the road (Prett Court) and the school’s car pool lane
The most popular paint to use is spray paint – it dries in several minutes, whereas latex paint and paint that is rolled will take several hours to dry.
You will probably need 2-3 cans of spray paint for a good base coat (more if your base coat is white) to cover the entire rock. 1 can if covering just one side.
Dependent upon the number of colors you want used in your message, a minimum of 1 can is needed per side
Be creative and show your school spirit!
Please do not attach/adhere anything to the rock as part of the decorations
****Please be kind to our environment and recycle your empty cans!****
