Barwick On The RoofSheldon, Iowa — Sheldon Middle School Principal Cindy Barwick spent Wednesday on the roof of her school building as a reward to her students.  Barwick says her day on the roof was a reward for scoring well on recent assessment tests.

The Principal says she’s having fun on the roof, and the kids are enjoying it, as well.

Barwick says that, despite the brisk winds, the weather has been cooperative for the endeavor.
