LeBron James was all smiles earlier today as he strolled through his I PROMISE School in Akron.

The four-time NBA MVP is back in Northeast Ohio as his Los Angeles Lakers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at Quicken Loans Arena.

LeBron greeted the staff and students of I PROMISE, which opened back in July. As I PROMISE put it on Twitter, "All love & smiles with our big kid from Akron back in school."

The school is a partnership between the LeBron James Family Foundation and the Akron Public Schools.

I PROMISE opened 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.
