Hello ICS families,

It is officially beginning to feel like Fall!

With fall weather finally here, this is a great time to make sure your children’s outerwear is clearly labeled with their first and last names. When items like coats and hats get lost they will often make their way back to you if it’s easy to find the owner’s name on it.
