We just got some new ones for Christmas. The ones they had were from the year before and not in good shape.
I got these at Walmart and honestly do not see them lasting long. However they have spiderman (Tre's) and Henry has spiderman and other marvel superheros.
I will take a look though as I am sure they will need new ones for next year.

Our school went that way not for contraband but for parents and teachers to be able to see what was in the backpack. There were many parents who weren't checking their kids backpacks. When they implemented this a few years ago they saw an increase of homework being returned to school and better parent/teacher communication. That is what is sad to me. When they get to HS they can have whatever kind of bag they want.

My kids have gone to school many times without their homework because they didn't but it back in their bag. We had the discussion this morning. It is their responsibiltiy to make sure it gets taken back to school.
