It's the first day of school for some Akron students Monday.

Sure, there's always the back-to-school nerves and end-of-summer-break woes -- but this new beginning is far from ordinary.

"It’s not really a normal day with LeBron James in your first day of school, but it will be pretty exciting today," says Michele Campbell, executive director of the LeBron James Family Foundation.

Classes begin with third- and fourth-grade classes this year. First and second grades will be added in the next school year. By 2022, the school will be complete with first through eighth grades.
