A $5,000 grant from the United Way of Greater New Haven will help fund a Homework Diner program at Washington for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten families in the 2016-2017 school year.

Homework Diners have been held at other district schools, including Savin Rock Community School and Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School, to give families a free meal and a chance to work on homework with assistance from teachers as needed.

The "diner" will be held five times throughout the school year and help students establish good homework routines, while giving parents an opportunity to learn reading and math strategies, said Stefania Larry, who oversees early childhood learning in the district.
