September Pics

Greetings All,
 
 
The school year has been off to a great start. The first few weeks of school at Preschool are typically full of quite a few tears from kids getting used to their new environment, but I have to say, we've been off to an exceptionally smiley start to the school year. Seriously. It's been slightly strange. Good strange. But hey, we'll take it! I'm convinced it's a sign to what a marvelous year we are all going to have together.
 
Almost everyone has turned in their take-home work from the contents of their folder that was received at the parent meeting. If you haven't sent in your child's baby outfit yet, please do so ASAP! Also as a reminder: note that our school hours are 7:30am-5:00pm. (Any late pick-ups will be charged a late fee.) If you have any questions on anything you can always shoot us an email at: congdoncreekpreschool@gmail.com.
 
 
 I've been snapping some pictures of the smiley faces these past few days, so here they are!!

Meet the Teachers

 
 
 

 
Hello! My name is Kelly Chastey. I have a degree in education from UMD. I have two boys, Keegan and Parker, and a daughter, Luci. When I'm not attending any number of family activities, you can find me reading, refinishing old furniture, or enjoying the outdoors. Travel and reading are my passions and I volunteer at Lowell running book club for kids. I look forward to a fun year!





My name is Elicia Burns and I am a licenced Early Childhood Educator from UMD. I have been working in the field for over ten years. I love Duluth and all it has to offer. my husband and two children and I love to be outside playing sports and enjoying the lake. I look forward to meeting you and working with you over the course of the year.









I am Dana Breen. I am a veteran preschool and elementary school teacher with a masters degree from DePaul University in Curriculum Development. my family is new to the area so we are still enjoying exploring Duluth. We especially like the Lake Walk, walking our dog at Hawks Ridge, ad my two teens love to "rink rat".
 
 
 
  
 
 

Hi! I'm Jakki Weyrauch. I am a UMD graduate with a degree in Elementary Education and a Specialization in Reading and Language Arts. I'm married to Andy Weyrauch, and together we have two children; Sophia and Sam. My family and I enjoy spending time outdoors in Duluth hiking the many trails, and playing in Lake Superior.







Hi! I'm Patti Cane, owner/director of Congdon Creek Preschool. I'm married to Greg Cane and together we have a daughter Amanda. I have been involved as a teacher with CCP for 20 years. I'm very involved with the community, I love to coach soccer and skating for all ages. I love chocolate and outdoor adventures. 











My name is Tiffanee Hammer. I graduated from UMD with a B.A.S. in Early Childhood Studies.

My 6 year old son and I live in the Lakewood area on 30 acres. We enjoy outdoor activities like camping, four wheeling, snowmobiling, running and spending time with family.

I am excited to build relationships with children and their families here at CCP! As an educator, I will provide a positive learning atmosphere that welcomes exploration and enhances children's confidence. I will do my best to instill the desire to learn in the children at CCP.
