A Gigantic THANK YOU to everydayhero
Last Man Standing Marathon
Rock Star Steve Canter!

Over Labor Day weekend, Steve Canter, South Kingstown parent and a Friend of CARES, competed in the Last Man Standing Ultramarathon and in the process, raised over $8,100 for CARES. Steve put in 19 hours of effort and 18 successful hours of running for a total of 79.8 miles to finish in 6th place out of 88 fierce competitors. Steve is truly an inspiration and we are truly grateful for his support. You rock, Steve!

A South Kingstown child needs you!

South Kingstown CARES grew out of a 1995 District-wide PTO survey on volunteer usage in schools. That survey concluded that SK needed an organized, district-wide program which would benefit both our students and our community.

That conclusion was reinforced by the School Committee's primary strategic goal of community involvement and by Rhode Island's Goal 2000, which specified parental and community involvement as one of the key components of school improvement.

Each year, CARES recruits, trains and places nearly 400 volunteers. These volunteers are comprised of community members, parents, university students and high school students. These individuals collectively give thousands of hours annually in support to the students and teachers in the South Kingstown School District. We are always seeking new volunteers. If you are interested in getting involved in one of our volunteer programs listed below, please click the green "Become A Volunteer" button at the top of this page and fill out a volunteer application today!


Our Mission:
