Students from the Tracy Learning Center beat the heat by frolicking under a jet of water coming from Tracy Fire's Truck 91 to celebrate the next to last day of school Thursday.
Students were treated to a "Water Day" filled with small pools, water slides and a visit from the firefighters who used the nozzle on the truck to cool off the students before heading out to summer break.
The eighth-graders will have their graduation ceremony on Friday.

TMZ got their hands on the audio from the 911 call yesterday from Michael Jackson's rental home in Holmby Hills. They never identify the 50-year-old man who is not breathing as Jackson, but do say that a doctor is there present with him:
When EMTs arrived, they apparently wanted to pronounce Jackson dead, but Murray refused to let them "call it," according to TMZ who also says a family source believes Jackson died from his daily Demerol injection. A video shown on TV last night of the ambulance backing out of Jackson's driverway showed EMTs calmly, but slowly, backing out of the driveway.
