Panago Pizza Hot Lunch - Wednesday, December 20, 2017 (Orders Due Sunday, December 17 by noon)
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.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date.
