My 4 yr old starts prek on August 13th. School shopping for us soon. We will be getting back pack, new clothes, and shoes. Those who have kids in school any suggestions on what else we need? (She does not have a school supply list).

Nap mat? Don't forget that if they take naps. Unless its half day and then you won't need that

They actually have mats there, but that does remind me we will need a blanket. Do you have one that's been through PREK? Anything else I might need?

No, my DD will also be entering the Pre-K this year, but I work in the pre-k. My DD has a list. I can list it for you and see if that helps

4 boxes of crayons

2 glue sticks

Play dough

Paint

3 boxes Kleenex

Back pack

Blanket for nap

Nap mat

Change of clothes

Zip loc bags (boys)

Package of wipes (girls)

We provide scissors, I dunno what your school provides, but you may also think of scissors and maybe a crayon box.

Funnily enough I work at the school she's attending we don't do a supply list they furnish the scissors, crayons, markers, paper and most the other stuff you named. The kids all bring different things. I know a water bottle for outside play is required as well as suntan lotion I was just wondering if I was missing anything else?

Thats weird. Why no supply list? Yet they require water bottles and such. How is a parent to even know? I mean, sure YOU work there but what about other people?

They will tell you if she needs anything else.  Every Pre-K is different with there requirements.
