Supply List and Back to School BBQ

I can't believe we are already to August!  In just a few, short weeks we will be back to school. Until then, I hope you continue to enjoy your summer.  Ms. Kimberly and I are looking forward to seeing and meeting many of you at the Early Ed Open House and Back to School Barbecue on August 28th!

Open House begins at 4:30 in our classroom (Room 101).  Children and parents are invited to come and explore the room, reconnect with friends and play for a little while.  At 5, we ask that children head outside with one parent/adult while another parent/adult remains in the room for a short presentation about what to expect for year ahead.  This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have an get a real sense for our classroom.  At 5:30 we have a school-wide BBQ, a wonderful event where we get to see our community come together for food and fun to begin our year!

As promised, here is the supply list for our classroom this year:
  • We will be doing a weekly cooking project associated with our Letter of the Week, so we are asking for $10 from each child to help purchase all the ingredients for these projects!
  • Boys - 1 package plastic spoons, Girls - 1 package plastic forks
  • 1 package paper plates
  • 1 package baby wipes
  • 2 packages Clorox or Lysol Wipes
  • 1 small pack of 8 crayons (Crayola strongly preferred!)
  • 1 box of Crayola 10 Classic Colors Markers
  • 1 box of basic colored pencils
  • 1 small bottle of glue
  • 1 1" 3 ring binder with child's name on the spine (marker or tape works or you can personalize it any way you want!)
  • 1 Bed roll (if your child is full day) - We work on self help skills and these are great for self sufficient rest set up and clean up! Examples of what I'm talking about can be found here: To buy or to make.  They should have the pillow, blanket and rest area all-in-one.  Please be sure it has a strap so they can be hung from hooks.
 
Please note that our class does wear the uniform, so be sure to check the uniform closet or order your uniforms before the start of school!

As always, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions - szachary@cksvt.org.

Looking forward to a fabulous new year!

Welcome!

Welcome to PreK!

We are a Kindergarten Readiness classroom here at CKS.  What does this mean?  This means we work with your child(ren) to establish and foster the important skills needed to succeed in later schooling!  Our emphasis is on social/emotional growth, self-help skills, executive functioning skills and overall teaching kiddos how to best behave in a school environment! 


Ms. Kimberly and I have been a team here at CKS for almost 6 years. We love this age group and delight in watching your children learn and grow each day. We can't wait for you to join us in the fall for a great year of fun and learning!

First and foremost, my email is szachary@cksvt.org, feel free to contact me at any point during the summer with questions! I will be checking it periodically and will respond as soon as I can!

Below, please find the important information and dates you’ll need before we start.

  • August 1st: Our supply list will be listed here on the CKS website.
  • August 28th: We will have our Open House beginning at 4:30 in our classroom.  Children and parents are invited to come and explore the room, reconnect with friends and play for a little while.  At 5pm, we ask that children head outside with one parent/adult while another parent/adult remains in the room for a short presentation about what to expect for year ahead.  This is a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have an get a real sense for our classroom.  At 5:30 we have a school-wide BBQ, a wonderful event where we get to see our community come together for food and fun to begin our year!
  • August 30th: The first day of school!  
  • August 30th, 31st and September 1st: These are half days (noon dismissal) for the kiddos both to ease them into the school year and award us the opportunity to set up intake interviews with you!  At the Open House there will be a sign up for a meeting time for you to discuss your child with us before the school year really gets going!

I hope you have a marvelous summer full of sunshine, outdoor time and books read together!  I look forward to seeing you all on August 28th!

Warmest Regards,

Mrs. Shannon Zachary
