Annual Chalk Walk

-Erika Hillman

Although it’s early in the school year Eastwood’s Art Club has been keeping very busy. The club has just recently participated in the Chalk Walk at the Black Swamps Art Festival. They won first place and $500 for the school's art department! This is a continuation of their winnings considering the art club also drew their way to the top in 2012. The club continues to carry on their tradition of participating in The Chalk Walk again next year. “ I am very proud of them, I wanted them to understand that winning was great, but the experience that they had and walked away with is priceless!” says Mrs. Moorman, the school's art teacher. Coming up for the art club will be a pumpkin carving and Day of the Dead face paint contest.

Internet Dangers Displayed to the Students

-The Eagle's Eye Staff

David Frattare, Director of State Investigation/ICAC Commander, visited the high school on Monday, September 12 to inform the students at the high school and middle school about internet safety.

He gave the students a very informative presentation about the dangers of talking to strangers online. He also went into his past experiences and stories about the consequences of not using internet safety.

Frattare has been investigating the internet for 18 years after he became a certified police officer and learned a lot of knowledge about the internet.

He stays busy, with thirty to forty children reported each year through the National Center of Missing Children. He goes to eight to ten houses a month, just in Cleveland alone, to talk to children who have been reported for inappropriate messages on the internet. Also, he receives at least 400 tips from the state in just one month resulting in 25-50 cases a month.

His advice to anyone on the internet would be to use common sense, report harassment cases, be aware, and keep evidence.
