Story of our School

Students racing against each other in the playground

CHIMO is located in Smiths Falls, Ontario. Our current school population is 400 students. 

CHIMO is an elementary school that serves students in Kindergarten through to Grade 8. We offer both a Core French program (40 minutes of French per day) and a French Immersion program (150 minutes, or half a day, of instruction in French). Both of these programs start in Kindergarten. We also host a Power Up 2 class that focuses on literacy and math skills. Working with out learning partners out educators used data to drive instruction with tools such as UFLI and assessments such as DIBELS. 

We have an amazing number of extra curricular activities and clubs that students can participate including choir, chess club, Lego club and our Sage group. Our dedicated staff athletic teams such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country, track and field and hockey. 

The CHIMO Elementary School Council consists of a committed group of individuals that host movie nights, bring in guest speakers through their PIC grant to benefit the entire community, fundraise for school activities and volunteer in the building. 

We have a large cohort of volunteers including parents, grandparents and community members that provide literacy support, facilitate the hot breakfast program and special lunches such as grilled cheese day.
