God gave us the earth, all the flowers and trees
The mountains and oceans, the lakes and the seas.
We have to take care, and put back what we take
So planting some trees is a good choice to make.
To celebrate Earth Day, we’re digging up ground
And planting twelve trees, each in their own mound.
We’ll have to take care, as they are young and not strong
And if we’re too rough, the trees won’t stay for long.
The clouds will give rain, to help the roots down below
And before we all know it, to the sky they will grow.
So remember the earth, reduce, recycle and please
Be kind to our gift and take care of the trees.
Amen

Principal’s message
Monday, April 22 was a very exciting and busy day at
St. Julia School. The morning started off with an Earth
Day assembly in the gym followed by the planting of
our Peace Garden. I would like to take this opportunity
to thank the community for their generous donations to
our garden and special thank you to Mrs. Kukolic who
organized the donation and delivery of many beautiful
trees for our school yard and to Mr. Grittani for
designing and planting our Peace Garden. The garden is
situated in our front yard and can be enjoyed by parents
and students as they walk to school. We will be adding
a bench and plaque in memory of Ruth. We have now
completed Phase 1 of the garden and look forward to
planting Phase 2 next year. Once again, thank you to
parents, students and staff for making this Peace Garden
possible.

WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN EVENING
On Wednesday, May 15, 2013 the newest and youngest
members of St. Julia Elementary School will be
welcomed by our current staff and School Council
members . They will be introduced to the school
routines and fun activities in preparation for their entry
in September. A special Thank you to The Learning
Partnership for providing pre-school children and their
families with resources and experiences to begin formal
education with a foundation in early learning that is
nurtured within the home. We look forward to seeing all
the bright new faces in September.
MOVING
Just a reminder…if you are moving before the end of
the year or over the summer please inform the school
office as soon as possible so that the class lists may
accurately reflect the number of students enrolled. Also,
if new neighbors have moved in it would be appreciated
if you could let them know that we are accepting
registrations for next September and that they are
welcome to drop by the office for a registration package.
When moving to a new school transfer papers from
your current school are needed. The office requires a
few days to process these.
Volunteer Appreciation Tea
The staff and students of St. Julia would like to show their
appreciation for all the support we have received throughout
the year from all our volunteers. If you have volunteered in
any capacity this year, we would like you to join us for a
reception at the school on June 11, 2013 @ 2:00 pm in our
school library. Please RSVP the main office to confirm.
GET UP AND GO DAY
St. Julia's first Get Up & Go Day was a huge success! Students
from grades 4-8 were very excited about choosing and
participating in a wide variety of activities related to healthy
living. We would like to thank all the teachers who made the
day possible, as well as Peel Health for providing St. Julia with
a grant to sponsor this event.
A huge thank you goes out to the following people and
organizations for leading the amazing activities:
Mrs. Menezes (dance)
Mrs. Banducci (tai chi)
Mrs. Moniuszko (yoga)
Jennifer Wolfs (stepping)
Mrs. Klugman (healthy eating a.m.)

gatherings. This culminating activity reflects
all of
the hard
work the Rosary Apostolate volunteers have done with our
students to teach them the hymns of Mary and the prayers of
the Rosary. We thank the members of the Rosary Apostolate
for their hard work and dedication to the students of St. Julia.
We would certainly welcome members of the parent
community to join us for the celebration. JK – grade 3 will be
gathering from 9:00 – 10:00 in the gym. Grades 4 – 8 will
gather from 10:30 – 11:30. Close to 70 students will be
involved with the presentation of the living rosary. It promises
to be a wonderful celebration of this rich traditional devotion
to our Lady.
LENTEN COLLECTION
We have been counting pennies for Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur’s Pure Water Campaign for Children in Africa, Latin
America and New Mexico. The donations have been overwhelming! We have collected over $200 in pennies! This donation
will be helping and changing the lives of these people. Pure water means: a better quality of life, protection from cholera and
dehydration and longer life expectancy. Thank you again for reaching out to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
SCHOOL COUNCIL NEWS
MOVIE NIGHT
Our recent Wreck it Ralph Movie Night was a success. We raised $475 to go towards enriching the educational activities at St.
Julia. The Hotel Transylvania Movie Night ended just a few minutes into the movie due to a black out. Because of that
unforeseen circumstance, we didn’t get to do the raffle for the DVD during the event. At the following School Council meeting,
we drew tickets for the winner of the Hotel Transylvania DVD and it was won by Mr. Lawrence.
Our Movie Nights are over for this school year. Just a reminder for next year that it is a family event and students must be
accompanied by a parent or guardian. The movies are suitable for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6.
EARTH DAY PEACE GARDEN
On April 22nd, Earth Day, the St. Julia community rallied together to create a beautiful Peace Garden in honour of our fellow
Grade 4 student, Ruth Katelyn Cruz, who passed away from a brain tumor in December. We have many people to thank.
The Real Canadian Superstore on Mavis Road at Dundas donated 15 cedars, 15 shrubs, 10 plants, 15 bags of soil, gardening tools
for 10, a couple of shovels and 20 packets of seeds. Thank you to Siobhan Kukolic for co-ordinating this donation and to her
husband Tony Kukolic for picking up all the items in his pick-up truck and dropping them off at St. Julia. And thanks to school
custodian, Mr. Riele, for moving the plants around from the shed to the planting site and for helping with the co-ordinating and
planting on Earth Day. The City of Mississauga donated three rose bushes, two grey dogwoods and one serviceberry tree. Thank
you to Siobhan Kukolic for co-ordinating this donation.
Parent Mr. Grittani is a landscaper by trade. He took time out from his company, Land Graphics Inc., 647-287-2018,
[email protected], to create a plan for the Peace Garden. He and two other men, Al Osorio, a family friend, and Ovi
Duque, his brother-in-law, spent the entire day on April 22nd at St. Julia, planting the Peace Garden, and the school Eco-Garden,
with the students. Mr. Grittani also picked up all the plants that were purchased with $657 in donations from St. Julia parents,
purchased some soil for the garden out of his own funds, and got the big rocks for the garden donated from Stephanie and Alan
Oliver, owners of Boulder Stone Supply in Oakville. To thank Mr. Grittani and his adult volunteers, School Council purchased
one $100 gift card and two $50 gift cards for The Keg to give to the three men who worked so hard on Earth Day.
Once Mr. Grittani shared the wish list of flowers and shrubs he could purchase wholesale, the St. Julia parents and friends together
donated $657 to ensure our Peace Garden would be blooming beautifully in no time. Thanks to Siobhan Kukolic for
communicating the need to parents and to Mrs. Charette who collected the funds and kept track of what people were donating
towards. A big thanks to the following parents and families who donated money for flowers, shrubs and supplies for the Peace
Garden:
Mrs. Maione, Mrs. Cesario, Mr. Cinapri, Mrs. Selva, Mrs. Trapani, Mrs. Carere, Mrs. Fabrizi, Mrs. Yuen, Mrs. Castrucci, Mrs.
Persicini, Mrs. Runstedler, Mrs. Drodzowski, Mrs. Caracciolo, Mrs. Dri, Mrs. Nazren, Mrs. Lee, Mrs. Koulakis, Mrs. Hoxha, Mrs.
Netto, Mr. Viegas, Mrs. Naumovski, Mrs. Marcuzzi and Mrs. Zizek.
The following members of the Cruz family, along with Ruth Katelyn’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cruz, also donated towards the
flowers, shrubs and supplies for the Peace Garden. Sonny Cruz, Mhel Guevarra, Helen Francisco, Joseline Pleto, Heather
Francisco, Juliana Cruz, and Mr. & Mrs. Willie Cruz. We are grateful for their generosity.
Costco donated $50 in gift cards towards the Peace Garden. This will be used to purchase mulch to protect the newly planted
trees and shrubs. Thank you to Siobhan Kukolic for securing this donation and to Mr. Grittani for picking up the mulch and
spreading it.
The money that has been raised by students selling rosary beads, the Starbucks coffee fundraiser at Parent-Teacher Interview
night, and other fundraisers for the garden, will go towards a bench that will be placed in the Peace Garden at a future date.
The City of Mississauga asked that we enter our school’s planting activity on the site onemilliontrees.ca whose goal is to plant one
million trees in the city over the next 20 years. We entered our Earth Day activity and after all was said and done, our school
community planted 117 trees and shrubs on Earth Day. We are listed on the site at the moment as one of the top planters in the
city. Thank you to all the parents who donated money and time to bring the Peace Garden, in memory of Ruth Katelyn
Cruz, to life.
