Welcome to James Mowat Elementary School - the "Home of the Jays".
We are an outstanding school that provides a top notch education to children in kindergarten through to grade six. Learning Support, monthly character education assemblies and RAINBOWS, are just some of the programs that make our school great.
We also offer a variety of extra-curricular activities including intramurals, choir, school safety patrol, student council, track teams, rocket club, tech club, chess club and a grade six badminton team.
Please take some time to browse our site and see for yourself all of the great things that happen at our school.

Starbucks Coffee and Tea Fundraiser and & Fantasy Club Bake Sale
Starbucks is once again donating coffee, tea and their time to help raise money for the school’s new playground. They will be set up during our celebration of learning conferences. We are asking for a minimum donation of $2 per cup (no change will be provided). At the same time our James Mowat School Fantasy Club will also be holding a bake sale.
GROCERY GIFT CARD FUNDRAISER 2013-2014
Our Grocery Gift Card Fundraiser last year was very successful, so we decided to continue using it as a fundraiser for the 2013/2014 school year. We use this fundraiser to raise money for a new school playground, and although we have collected a fair amount, we still have a way to go to reach our fundraising goal.
If you would like additional information on this fundraiser or need an order form, please click on the links below.
Thank you for continuing to support our fundraising initiatives.
Please Note: James Mowat School is only selling Sobeys and No Frills/President’s Choice gift cards at this time.
Our next Order Deadline is Tuesday, February 18, 2014.
Pink Shirt Day - February 26, 2014
The Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club, schools, businesses, organizations and individuals across Fort Saskatchewan and Canada will be participating in Pink Shirt Day. This is one of the biggest Anti-Bullying Awareness Day Campaigns ever.
The long term goal of this event is to get as many individuals, businesses and organizations to wear pink as a symbol that bullying will not be tolerated in our community. James Mowat School will be having a school assembly in the morning of February 26th. Students do not need to purchase a t-shirt, but we encourage students to wear pink on this day to show their support.
