2017-18 EIPS Parent Survey: We Want to Hear from You!
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensures its parents’ voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
James Mowat encourages all parents and guardians to take a few minutes to complete the brief online survey. It will only take a few minutes and will help to supplement the Division’s Accountability Pillar Survey data. At the end of the Parent Survey, French immersion families also have the opportunity to answer an additional series of questions regarding the French immersion programming offered within EIPS.
Please take a few minutes to check out all of the amazing things that are happening here at James Mowat School!

Schools will not be accepting paper registrations at the school office. If you do not have access to a computer, there will be a computer in the school office for online registrations.

Welcome to James Mowat Elementary School
Welcome to James Mowat School, “A Caring School”. Our goal 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 Kindergarten 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 incorporate the principles of restorative practice in our everyday life. We use the principles of restorative practice when dealing with discipline issues as well as incorporating it into our weekly circles. Our Character Education Program focuses on helping students learn characteristics that will help them to succeed both academically and socially throughout their school career and someday when they are in the work force. It also gives us a common focus and language within the school which is used by the staff and students when discussing school behaviour and 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, 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.
At James Mowat, we love volunteers! For the safety of our students, staff and volunteers, please always sign in at the office. Thank you!
