News from Naselle:

Hearts are heavy in our community as the Rob Dalton family lost a precious wife and mother, Elizabeth Dalton. She passed away on Friday, February 16 while vacationing with her husband in Hawaii. A GoFundMe page has been set up for future expenses of the family, “Together4Daltons.”

The Daltons are and have been an exceptional example of community involvement, family values, mentoring and teaching. Elizabeth and Rob have four children, and Rob currently teaches at the Naselle School.

My most sincere condolences to this family. God be with all of you, as Heaven has gained another angel.

Naselle boys Comet basketball team is off to Spokane for the WIIA State 1B Basketball playoffs. Go Comets!!

School is out the rest of the week for winter break and students will return to their classes on Monday.

It looks like the Chinese New Year Celebration was quite a hit, with student participation entertainment high on the list of fun. I understand that one of the relatively new students, Theo Burkhalter was really enjoying showing his prowess in a martial arts demonstration. Sorry I missed this event. All the students performed very well I’m told. Unfortunately, the flu bug came to our house. Congratulations to all, on a job well done.
