Welcome to James Mowat Elementary School

Welcome to James Mowat School, “A Caring School”.  Our mandate is to look after the academic, social, emotional and physical needs of our students during the school day.  James Mowat is an elementary school serving students from ECS to grade 6.  The school day is broken into 30 minute periods.  We offer the regular elementary program with French as a Second Language for 4 periods a week starting in grade 4.

At James Mowat we have started to incorporate the principles of restorative practice in our everyday life.  We will be using the principles of restorative practice when dealing with discipline issues as well as incorporating it into our character education program.  Our Character Education Program focuses on helping students learn characteristics that will help them to succeed both academically and socially.  It also gives a common focus and a common language within the school which is used by the staff and students when discussing school behaviour expectations.

A wide variety of extra-curricular activities are available for students who choose to participate (examples include choir, safety patrols, school council, track team, intramurals, hand chimes, newspaper club, badminton club, SYNC, adopt-a-shelf, basketball team, and chess club).  Information on these activities and events can be found in the monthly newsletters which are posted on our school website.

Please take some time to browse our site to see for yourself all of the great things that happen at our school.
