Class is now in session.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! If you can read this…thank a teacher.

Every day teachers educate, innovate, encourage, and touch the lives of millions of children across the world. They are real life superheroes. Help your child honor his or her teacher this week by sending them a thank you card, volunteering in the classroom or surprising them with a Mixed Bag.

Each teacher has a different style of teaching, but when it comes to fashion every teacher should dress for success. Shop our website to find the latest on bags and accessories. Our favorite is the Black Swirl File Box, which can easily transport your student’s homework or your lesson planner wherever you go.
