Douglas School first grade student Jala Lewis works on an assignment on the first day of school. At right is classmate Breonna Dickson. The students were to write about their first day of school experiences and feelings. 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.
