Tracy High seniors traded in their textbooks for a dip in the pool to celebrate the end of the school year during the annual Senior Beach Day on Tuesday, May 21.

Seniors who qualified for the pool party spent the day swimming in the lap and diving pools or sunbathing.

Parents provided a breakfast and lunch for the seniors along with music from a DJ.

Swimmers could take part in a biggest splash and best belly flop competition during the day.

Senior Beach Day comes as seniors are seven days away from graduation.

The Tracy High Class of 2013 is expected to graduate 369 seniors at 4 p.m. June 1 at Steve Lopez Stadium at West High School, 1775 W. Lowell Ave.

West High seniors will graduate at 8 a.m. June 1 at Steve Lopez Stadium, and the Kimball High commencement begins at 10 a.m. that same day in Don Nicholson Stadium, 3200 Jaguar Run.

Oh yes. Beach Day. I did go to for my 1993 class splash. I didn't swim since I was in a wheelchair. It was great seeing my friends though. I didn't see many of them for over a year!

Congrats to all of the seniors and make the most of your future! Go for your dream!
