Do you have a certain method to labeling?

**Backpack, Thermos, Pencil case. Not each individual item like a pencil, marker, etc..**  Thank you for your suggestionshappy

I do not on supplies because I realize items are for classroom sharing.

The only things I label are personal items like back pack and lunch bag. The lunch bag is from 31 gifts so it's embroidered the back pack has her name inside with sharpie.

I consider his pencil box, backpack and thermos school supplies so that is what I'm referring too.

I write their name on it with a Sharpie, if it's needed. I'm not sure what needs to be labeled right now so I'll wait until the Meet the Teacher night to ask.

And it took you 2 quotes from my original reply to decide it was snarky..... Genius! And swift!

Take however you want, maybe you don't realize many many many many schools in the country pool school supplies in classrooms. It's nothing out of the ordinary or out of this world. No point in labeling something like a pencil that's for community use, it'll still be for community use regardless of who's name is on it. That's just how it is.

I don't normally bother but I would try permanent marker. Make sure it can't rub off if you are concerned. We had an issue of a girl taking something of someone's and rubbing their name off of it on purpose.
