The Viking Saga has been a print publication for East Lyme High School since the school's beginnings, and has now made a brand new website.

Web Mission Statement

The 2016-2017 Viking Saga will provide a website that brings an interactive source of online journalism, providing coverage on school and athletic events going on throughout the East Lyme community. We will use multimedia to entertain the viewer through opinion based articles that go beyond the print edition. The website will be a place where students share their opinion and promote students discussion and voice. 

Meet this year's Viking Saga staff!
