On May 10, Waterloo Elementary School hosted the 24th annual Grade 2-3 math competition. This is a fun day for the students with the questions designed to make everyone think outside of the box! Nineteen teams of four students each representing schools from across the wide expanse of the Eastern Townships School Board (ETSB) arrived at Waterloo Elementary with pencils, erasers and calculators in hand. After being welcomed by their team host and receiving a welcome snack, the day began.

Given that he is afraid of heights, it is more than surprising that Yves Doiron should have carved out a career for himself repairing slate roofs.
âItâs because Iâm afraid of heights that Iâm still working,â he says. âI put a very big premium on safety. I hope all roofers right across the country are afraid of heights if it prompts them to work safely and securely.â
At National Conference I attended two workshops. One was citizenship advocacy which talked about how to become an American citizen. The second was about military life with a focus on kids whose parents are often deployed because they are in the army. Both these workshops were very interesting to listen to. I also attended a round table discussion about healthy living and nutrition. There were about 30 delegates in this group and we had to come up with a plan to get future generations healthy and active.
It was an odd location for a press conference, but a fun one nonetheless: in a city bus!
On the sunny Friday morning of May 10, in the parking lot in front of the centre culturel de lâUniversitĂ© de Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke 2013 unveiled the schedule of semifinals and final events while launching the ticket sales for those events.

An elegant gathering was held on Friday evening at the Colby-Curtis Museum in Stanstead to celebrate the long-awaited reopening of the completely refurbished solarium.

Bishopâs Alexander Fox and Jean-Christophe Gagnon of the Sherbrooke Vert & Or distinguished themselves at the 11th annual CIS East-West All-Star game Saturday featuring the top undrafted university football players. Fox led all receivers with seven catches including a touchdown reception while Gagnon was a dominant force on the defensive line. However their performances were not enough as West rallied for an 18-17 lead that ended a three-year winning streak for the East at the annual CIS football prospects game and now leads the all-time series 7-4.
