mr. and mrs. Claus 2015Jaymie Atkins, Veritas Asst. Managing Editor

Every year, The Veritas staff names two teachers with high spirits and joyful cheer Mr. and Mrs. Claus.

Hard thought and voting went into this decision, and the staff decided that French teacher, Mr. Finn and Special Education teacher, Ms. White are a great fit. These holiday spirited teachers answered a few questions for us about Christmas.
