The supper meals are being offered from 3:45 to 4:45 p.m. on school days at Del Valle, Hanks, and Ysleta high school. The meals are free of charge to children 18 years and younger, but are also available for purchase by adults. The supper program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program."

On October 11, 2016 Eastwood High School’s Robotic Team partnered up with Robotics Education Competition (REC) Foundation and VEX Robotics, Inc. to host “Girl Powered”
More than 300 girls from all over El Paso participated in Girl Powered, which fell on the International Day of the Girl Child. The event consisted of engaging activities, speakers and workshops that excited and encouraged girls to participate in competitive robotics, and further encouraged them to take an interest in the STEM field. Throughout their day, the girls had the opportunity to participate in leadership activities, compete, and hear from STEM organizations.
This event was an initiative to engage more young women in science, technology, engineering, and math. Through the REC Foundation, many of these young girls are presented a series of robotics engineering programs that engages them from elementary school through college in the classroom and competitions. “Eastwood Robotics is proud to support this great foundation,” said Raul Torres, Eastwood robotics coach. “Anything we can do to empower, inform, and engage more girls to pursue careers in STEM and robotics is worth doing.”
