My kids have glue sticks in their classrooms (I'm on a cart) and use them
quite often, I agree the colored glues ruin some of their things. I tried
to order sharpies at the beginning of the year but I was informed firmly
that permanent markers were not an option. Disappointing...I think the
Crayola classpack will be the way I go next year.
