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.
“Screenagers” Family Movie Night, January 19th, 6:30 pm at Edna Brewer (Panther Playhouse)
Screenagers addresses the most pervasive parenting issue of our time, depicting teen struggles over social media, video games and internet addiction. The film empowers kids to navigate the digital world and provides parents resources to help them do it.
(if $$ is a challenge for you, please see info on the form)
“Screenagers is a very balanced, sympathetic and sane look at the way millions of teens are struggling with phones and games and technology in general. In part by letting the teens themselves speak about their own concerns and solutions.” — Dave Eggers, Author

Career Day was a big success thanks to the awesome volunteers from the Brewer community and beyond! A big shout-out to Ms. Philips for organizing this every year!
We would love to hear from current or former students about the impact Career Day had on them.
Here’s what Career Day volunteers had to say:
“We were so impressed with the students and teachers alike. I was mostly impressed with students’ existing knowledge of writing code through organizations like code.org and blackgirlscode.com. What a bright future!”
