The school keeps coloring on my son with marker...

My 12 y.o. son keeps coming home with all these dark green dash marks all over the back of his hand. He says it's from gym class. Every time they complete a lap, they get a mark on their hand. It doesn't easily wash off. It stays visible a couple of days. I think I'm gonna call and complain. Would it bother you?

Edit. He just told me it's the big Expo markers for writing on the white board. I think I'm gonna get the gym teacher washable markers for Christmas.

Worse things to complain about. Choose your battles.

...This isn't one of them.

Nope. But if it annoys you that bad, buy them popsicle sticks to use and talk to the teacher

I have bigger problems in life that my kids hand getting marked in gym class...lol. No. I would not complain about something that is hurting no one. Tell your kid to wash better if it bothers you.

Not really. I may ask for them to use a washable marker though.

Buy them some crayola markers and be done with it.

Quoting UxorQuodMatris.: No, I wouldn't be bothered by it.
When I was a kid, we got a ticket for each laps. I wonder why they don't do that.
