Douglas School first grade student Chloe Henry works on an assignment on the first day of school. She and classmates had to write about their experiences and feelings on the first day of school. Douglas School is in Belleville, and is in school district #118. It is one of the Belleville schools which don't have a kindergarten, so the students in Gravot's classroom were meeting each other for the first time on Thursday. School was a little over three hours long on the first day.
