Sixth Grade – Segue

Teachers:

Welcome to TEAM SEGUE (sey-gwey). A segue is a smooth transition from one stage to another. On Team Segue, it is our goal to help students make a smooth transition from elementary to middle school as students make new friends, face new challenges, and learn new ways of doing things. Middle school is filled with many changes and challenges, yet this is an exciting time, and we want to make this segue as smooth as possible.

We have a wide range of teaching experience and we look forward to assisting your child as she / he meets the challenges of 6th grade. We’ve included some informational items below to help your family become acquainted with team procedures.


Contact Times

Team teachers are typically available for phone calls before and after school. Feel free to contact us as needed. The school phone number is (815) 899-8170. In addition, each teacher can also be contacted by email using the staff directory.

To facilitate communication, please use the following guidelines:

  • Concerns that impact your child in all core classes should be directed to the Team Leader. Every attempt will be made to respond to your request as soon as possible.
  • Concerns that impact your child in a specific class should be directed to that individual teacher.

Late Work Policy / Absences

All work is expected to be handed in on time in order to enhance the level of learning that takes place during class time.

Missing work due to absences can be acquired by contacting the teacher upon returning to school before school, during study hall, or after school.

Parent Portal

Your child’s graded work is a good indicator of performance in each class. Please use Infinite Campus to review your child’s grades on a regular basis. Regular checks of your child’s progress will help to ensure his or her success. If you have concerns, it is a good idea to call or email the individual teacher.

Help Sessions

Teachers will be available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:40 – 8:00 a.m. to give students extra help as needed. In order for students to make the best use of this time, they should arrive ready to work no later than 7:50. If a specific teacher needs to be seen before or after school, a student should contact that teacher in advance to make sure the teacher is available on a specific day.

We look forward to having a great year helping your child learn and grow.
