While our annual school assembly cannot take place in person this year, we would still like to acknowledge our local veterans who selflessly served our country. Please help us pay tribute to them in a virtual ceremony by sending a digital photo or two, possibly “then” and “now”, of a veteran that you know, as well as branch served, time period, and any special recognition (i.e., Lt. John Patrick, Army, 1965-1969, 2 Bronze Stars) Somonauk School District values the service of our Veterans, we look forward to honoring them and their families this year. Please send the pictures to email@example.com by November 2, 2020, in order to be included in the presentation.
