2021-2022 PreK Supply List

Welcome to CKS PreK! I can't wait to meet you and your kiddos!

Here is the supply list for our classroom this year:


  • A 1", 3 ring binder with your child's name on the spine

  • 1 Bedroll (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!

They should have the pillow, blanket and rest area all-in-one.

  • 3 packages Clorox or Lysol Wipes (or as many as you can find!)

  • 1 package of baby wipes

  • 1 box tissues

  •  Silverware for your child's snack and lunches. This can be a set that returns home for

        nightly cleaning or compostable single-use options.



  • 1 pack of 8 crayons (Crayola strongly preferred!)

  • 1 box of Crayola 10 Classic Colors Markers

  • 1 box of basic colored pencils

  • 1 set of basic watercolor paints (with brush)

  • 2 sharpened pencils with erasers

  • 1 highlighter (any color)

  • 3 large glue sticks


COVID CONSIDERATIONS (if mask mandate returns):

  • 4 labeled cloth face masks daily.  These will be sent home to wash daily.

  •  2 spare cloth masks to be left at school (like spare clothes in cubbies!)

  • 2 bags labeled clean and dirty to store masks separately.


Our classroom has an Amazon wishlist that I will be adding to throughout the year as we find the new and varied ways to teach and learn in this new normal. Thank you so much for your help in making our classroom the best it can be!

**Also, we do wear the CKS uniform and gym uniform, so check the uniform closet or order one ASAP!**

Any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me ( as I check email daily.

Can't wait for August!

All About PreK

About the PreK Classroom 

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 loving, Catholic school environment! 

A Look Inside the Room

Members of our classroom community have access to a daily blog which features pictures, updates on classroom and school wide events and a starting point for conversations with your child based on what was done in our room each day.

About Mrs. Zachary  

Hello, and welcome to the PreK at Christ the King School!  Allow me to introduce myself, I am Shannon Zachary and I am entering my eighth year here in the Early Ed Department. I was previously the teacher of the Nestlings (also known as Bridge) class.  Catholic education has always been important to both me and my family.  My sisters and I all graduated from Rice and my mother was a teacher, principal and later assistant superintendent in Vermont's Catholic schools.  That commitment to Catholic education carried over into college as well, as I graduated from Providence College with a degree in Political Science and St. Mike's for my Teacher Licensure Program.  

love preschoolers and their unique outlook on the world, the way they handle the immense learning curve they are on and the fact that my job involves singing, hugs and hilarious comments daily.  In our classroom you will often hear music and laughter, but not to worry, there is plenty of learning going on too!  :)

When not at school, I love spending time with my husband Vinnie (a classmate from Rice) and our two daughters Calla and Delia (both are here at CKS starting this year!).  My hopes for the year are that we have fun while we learn and that your kiddos and families will love CKS as much as I do!
