Today, students were pleasantly surprised to find some new furniture located in the Auditorium hallway. This area, now to be called the Viking Commons, will be accessible to students before and after school, and during their open periods. Our school desperately needed another place for students to go to study or relax. By day's end, the space's potential was coming into focus, as students flocked to the new attraction.
