The Wyckoff PTO Economy Shop distributes 100% of net profits equally to the PTO's of the Wyckoff Public School District's 5 schools, Ramapo High School and Indian Hills High School. Each school year over $7,500 is distributed to each school. Some ways that the PTO's have used these dollars include: student scholarships, teacher grants, field days and trips, theme days, STEM programs, cultural assemblies/events (author visits, costumes), school grounds beautification and maintenance (plantings, basketball court), and supplies and equipment (art, music, media).
 
The Economy Shop has been closed for some time, but is planning to re-open on October 12th.
When we open the shop, things will look a bit different. We will not be accepting any consignment accounts for now; we will operate only as a thrift shop to start. The hours of operation will be shorter.
 
We have the positions of VP of Marketing, 1 Treasurer and 2 VPs of Monday Markdowns already filled. Those who are leaving will help any volunteers transition into the position. Please consider filling these positions to ensure that the shop remains open and provides money to the schools. 
 
The following Executive Board positions are needed: 
  • 2 Co-Presidents
  • 1 Treasurer (we have an existing assistant/co-treasurer who will be staying for another year and the exiting treasurer will help train)
  • 1 VP of Volunteers
  • 1 Secretary
As the funds from the shop go to all seven schools, each school needs two representatives within their board. They are responsible for representing the shop for Ramapo and one of them needs to be at the shop every Monday for "Monday Markdown". These changes relating to consignors will affect how "Monday Markdowns" work, making the work shorter and easier until the shop begins accepting consignors again. 
 
This is a unique year for the shop and we trying to get things back to how they used to be. Please help us do that. The shop has historically provided between $6,000 - $7,000 per school, per year with very little asked of the various schools PTOs outside of the two representatives. We are asking for your support now to get us back to pre-COVID volunteerism. 
 
Thank you all for your help and support in the coming month and all year!
