Welcome to James Mowat Elementary School

We are an outstanding school that provides a top notch education to children in kindergarten through to grade six. French as a second language, a fantastic music program and our strong focus on literacy and numeracy are just some of the things that make our school so great.  We offer programs like RAINBOWS, anxiety and social groups and Roots of Empathy that help support student needs.

We also offer a variety of extracurricular activities including intramurals, choir, school safety patrol, student council, SYNC (Seniors & Youth Networking Communities), handchimes, newspaper club, chess club as well as jump rope club, basketball, track and badminton teams.

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


Support for Fort McMurray Families

Any students who have been displaced from their homes in Fort McMurray are welcome to register at James Mowat School. Anyone needing to register a child can come by our office during regular school hours and fill out a registration form. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school. Please know that we are here to provide assistance in any we can during these challenging times.

Thank you to all parents, staff members and students who have volunteered countless hours to support people who have been forced to evacuate their homes in Fort McMurray. The work that you do is greatly appreciated and is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected and in the coming weeks and months we will continue to offer support in any way we can.


Helping Hats

Over the next 7 days until May 12, students will be able to bring a donation each day which will allow them to wear a hat to school for that day.  All proceeds will go to the Canadian Red Cross in order to help families who have been impacted by the devastating fires in Fort McMurray.  This is a great opportunity for our school and students to show how much we care so please send a donation of your choice and together we will make a big impact!  Thank you in advance for your support!
