Please support our schools together by participating in the Yorktown School Bucks Program!!

April 12–16:
 Kids’ Spring Fashion—shop Gymboree, Justice, and The Children’s Place for Double Points.

April 19–23: Women’s Spring Fashion—shop Lands’ End, Loft, Forever 21 and H&M for Double Points.

April 28–29: Final Shopping Days for School Bucks! Double Points at JCPenney, Carson’s, Von Maur, HomeGoods/Marshalls and Last Chance.


Yorktown has changed the location to turn in these receipts.  They can now be turned in to the Management Office, located on the Upper Level near Forever 21, Monday through Friday from 8:30am-5:00pm. 

Due to the location change and limited hours to turn in receipts, you can now turn in your receipts to the PTA box in the Whittier school office.  Once a month, a PTA representative will bring in all our receipts for validation and credit.  If you would like your receipt returned to you, please indicate your child’s name and homeroom on the back.  Your receipt will then be returned to your child to take home.  Any blank receipts will be disposed of after validation.  So, keep shopping, eating and going to the movies at Yorktown – then bring your receipts to the Whittier Office.  Thanks for your continued support!

Show your movie ticket receipts from AMC 18 Yorktown for an easy (and fun!) 75 points per ticket!

Thank you for shopping and giving back to our PTA!

Receipts must be redeemed within 60 days of purchase date. Receipts will be collected from August 1, 2017 until May 1, 2018.

For Whittier to receive a monetary reward, we need to provide $2,000 in receipts by May 1, 2018.
