Somonauk Community Unit School District #432 would like to honor our United States Veterans during the week of Veterans Day, November 8-12, 2021. For the safety of our students, staff, and community we have decided not to host our annual school assembly again this year. We value this event with the highest regard and we look forward to hosting this event in the coming years. As a district, 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, Bronze Star) Somonauk School District values the service of our Veterans, we look forward to honoring them and their families. Please send the pictures to by November 1, 2021, in order to be included in the presentation.

On Friday the 8th grade volleyball season came to an end. The girls fought hard against Newark but came up short in two games. Throughout the season the girls improved greatly and should be proud of how much they have learned. Please wash your uniforms and listen for an announcement on when to turn them into the coaches.
