Mrs. Michele Corbat, Principal
Syring Elementary School
Employed by Swartz Creek Schools since 2003, Mary Sergent works as a valued part of the Syring team. She provides reading and math interventions to small groups and individual students. Mrs. Sergent also provides behavior support to students while working with them during recess & lunch detention. In addition, Mrs. Sergent helps to organize the materials and schedules for the entire rti program, sharing her expertise with the rest of the team. When questions arise about a student struggling to learn a particular skill, Mrs. Sergent is often consulted for her advice. She constantly searches online for materials and ideas to bring to the table to share that may help our students. We appreciate everything that Mrs. Sergent brings to the Syring team and thank her for her many years of service!
Mrs. Michelle Telliga, Principal
Gaines Elementary School
The Gaines MTSS Team meets monthly to monitor and adjust academic and behavior supports. K-5 students receive one-on-one and small group instruction in literacy and math. The groups are fluid; students are moved between groups in a way to best meet their learning needs. A daily system of Check-In/Check-out is used to monitor students who are on a behavior plan.

It Doesn't Seem Enough!
I want to tell you "Thank you,"
Words don’t seem sufficient--
"Blah, blah" and all that stuff.
Please know I have deep feelings
About your generous act.
I really appreciate you;
You’re special, and that’s a fact!
