How can i remove sharpie ink from my backpack?

Back in May, 1 of my friends wrote on my green Jansport backpack in black Sharpie. The high school I'm going to has a strict dress code and we can't have anything on our backpacks. Is there any way I can get it off without ruining the bag

try rubbing alcohol if that doesn't work put a little amount of laundry soap on it, let it sit over night then get a damp washrag and wash it off; you could also try hairspray, spray some on it, let it sit a couple minutes then wash it off with a damp washrag. if none of those work try to call a dry cleaners and ask them about it.
