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, weekly circle time 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, SYNC (Seniors & Youth Networking Communities), Handchimes, Newspaper Club and Fantasy Club.
Please take some time to browse our site and see for yourself all of the great things that happen at our school.

Say Hello to our NEW Playground!
Tim Horton's Camp Day
Every Monday at 9:30am, we have circle time. Students come to the gym and they work in small groups that include Kindergarten through grade 6 students with the groups being the same each week. The circles are built on Restorative Justice circles with the grade 6 students taking a strong leadership role in their groups.
The topics change each week and we focus on character education as well as problem solving and creating strategies to help all of our students be successful. If you would like to see what we have covered each week so you can continue the conversation at home, please check Mrs. Sauder’s e-teacher page for weekly updates.
