The Spirit Truck has been around for 20 years! It's the idea of the Class of 2004 as they wanted to find a way to bring about spirit. And they wanted to outdo the Class of 2003's "Spirit Couch." The 1984 Chevy is still around and is still an attraction. #TBT #NLR

The school has returned to the letter grade that it had before COVID-19. But speaking to their students, staff, and administrators, they won’t be satisfied until they get an A.
