Saranac Community Schools is excited, and sad at the same time, to announce the retirement of Teri Bergy effective June 30th. Teri started at Saranac Community Schools in September of 1992. Teri started as a Bookkeeper in Central Office before moving to Superintendent's Secretary in 2000. The district has been fortunate to have Teri as part of the school family. We will certainly miss her dedication and hard work each and every day. However, even more importantly her positive attitude, smile, and friendship will be deeply missed. Teri has represented the school district in such a positive way. Please join us in congratulating Teri as she moves into retirement to spend time with her family. We wish her nothing but the best.
