I am writing to express my gratitude to several Swift Current businesses and the library for saving my class field trip.

My class of Kindergarten, Grade 1, and 2 students in Cabri were scheduled to go on an outdoor field trip that was rained out last week and again June 19 on our alternate date. I was left scrambling to put together a last minute indoor trip while I had parent drivers lined up (and before we ran out of school days).

Swift Current Pizza Hut very generously allowed my class to take a tour and make their own little pizzas mere hours after I called them. The staff was wonderful with the students, very helpful and kind, and the kids will always remember making and eating their very own pizzas.

Our spontaneous trip then took us to the Swift Current Library where the students were entertained with a story, two puppet shows, and an art project.  Everyone really enjoyed these activities as well.

We ended our day at the Frontier Bowling Lanes, where as before, we only gave a few hours notice, and the students had a great time bowling.

I (along with my students) am very appreciative to staff at Pizza Hut, the Library, and Frontier Bowling Lanes for being so inviting and accommodating on extremely short notice. We had a great day, thanks to you.
