North Kingstown School Department


Quidnessett Family Center

As a part of the North Kingstown School Department's Office of Family Learning, the Quidnessett Family Center provides comprehensive after school programming and support for students and families of Quidnessett Elementary School. In addition to after school programs, the Family Center offers family programs, and provides assistance to children through Blessings in a Backpack and other need based programs. The Family Center works to offer opportunities for both students and families to connect with the Quidnessett School Community.
Skill Squad - This program is specially designed to promote literacy and mathematics skills. Invitations to this program are made based upon assessment data and teacher observations. The goal of our program is to give your child a boost in these areas and close those gaps. The Rhode Island Department of Education has challenged every elementary school to ensure that every student is reading on grade level by the end of third grade.  We believe that this program will assist your child in reaching that goal.
Blessings in a Backpack - Weekly distribution is Thursdays from 4-6pm at 11 Merrill Lane.  Email to learn more or sign up.
