Celebrating their ‘city’

Tuesday was a big day for a couple of reasons at Tracy Elementary School. Besides the obvious (first day of school), students and faculty celebrated the school’s new city-themed playground addition, and they did it with some special guests: US Bank and mascot “Coach,” along with Viktor and two Minnesota Vikings cheerleaders. US Bank and the Vikings teamed up to match what had already been raised in Tracy and presented the school with a $38,000 check to go toward the big project.
