Why is the roof still leading at school?

Kristine Guarino, Second Grade at Meyers School

Something unusual happened in my classroom on Tuesday, Jan. 18. First, there was a leak in the ceiling. Then another one came. They kept coming, until there were five. I was really surprised when I saw them because the school just put on a new roof this summer.
