This week at Holy Angels, students experienced visitors from another time period! How did this happen you ask? Gretchen and Franz Berkemeier took on roles as "Running Water," a Native American and Israel Ludlow, Dayton's first land surveyor. Through their skit, students were able to form arguments for a debate to take place in class on floods. The subject of the debate being, "Should people settle on the floodplain?"
