Oakland’s Free Summer Lunch Program was established to provide breakfast and lunch to kids age 18 and under to fill in the gap that is often left in the number of meals kids receive once the school semester ends.
Registration is required for all students and has been set for August 7th, 8th and 9th. Look for detailed information in the mail, in the e-newsletter and on our school website!
Promotion is Wednesday, June 7th at Woodminster Amphitheater from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
To participate, students must have an Average Academic GPA of 2.0 or better and a C or better in PE and electives. This year 258 students have been invited to participate.
See alumni and current students performing solo and in small groups. Always a great show. 6:30 pm in the Playhouse on June 1st.
Here’s a performance from 2015
Thank you, Denise Limon for the photos!
Current 7th graders hoping to take Algebra next year are invited to take a math skills test in Mr. Corwin’s room (32) from 3:10 – 4:30 on either Tuesday, May 23rd OR Tuesday, May 30th. This 8th grade algebra class is a great opportunity for students to further challenge themselves in math and get ahead for high school! Please see Mr. Corwin with any questions.
The classic Shakespearean tale of a king who wanted power so badly he would stop at nothing..
Shows are Thursday, May 18 and Friday, May 19. Doors open at 5:30: come early to get a good seat. Tickets are $5. You may buy tickets at the door or use this form to pre-order and we’ll hold your tickets at the door until 5:50.
6th, 7th, and 8th graders have worked for months to prepare the show, and this year we have been thrilled to add stagecraft and costuming to our program with the amazing Sarah Shores and Kathie Stokes working with our students to make this the best Brewer Shakespeare extravaganza yet!
With music from Brewer students, this will be a wild ride!
This year the 8th graders worked with Generation Citizen to complete their civic engagement project for History Night. Generation Citizen is a non-profit organization that supports several classrooms across the Bay Area in becoming more civically engaged. They held Civics Day, a competition where several Bay Area classes present their civic engagement projects and compete for awards. Edna Brewer sent 22 students representing 6 eighth grade classrooms. Ms. Jones had several judges and teachers personally come to her and praise the great work.
The hard work paid off! 1st period class won the highest award for Best Overall Project for a gun and gang violence project, and the 8th period class won the award for “Student Choice” for a project on homelessness and affordable housing. We were the only school to bring home 2 awards! Please show love to all the students who represented with amazing professionalism, charisma and PRIDE! Go Panthers! Go History! Go 8th grade!
This year’s Ride for a Reason was bigger and better than ever with 260 registered riders and a record $127,000 raised for the 7 sponsored Oakland public schools, including Edna Brewer.
In addition to our team of riders, we had four amazing Brewer volunteers this year:
Congratulations to Brewer students Elizabeth Laber and Audrey Stineman who rode 45 miles from the Fairfield start and Greta Glueck and Leo Mates-Muchin who rode 68 miles from the Suisun start. Thanks to the Brewer community for coming together to support this ride for public education.
Brewer will field a team for Ride for a Reason 10, the 10th anniversary ride, next year on April 28, 2018. Our 2018 Brewer R4R10 leads will be teacher Eva Stevens and parent JT Mates-Muchin. Hope you can join us!
