Flooded Classroom? The Agassiz Flood of ’48 has taken over Mrs. Cardinal’s class as the students have developed a keen interest in all the events that occurred during that time. They recently travelled to the regional library and the Kent Municipal Cemetery as that is the setting in the book that started it all; “Flood Warning”.
