The Amherst Exempted Village Schools have partnered with Innisbrook School Supplies to provide parents with the option of purchasing next year's supply lists in a "Back-To-School" Pack that will be shipped directly to your home in August. You certainly don't have to purchase the "Back-To-School" Pack from Innisbrook if you enjoy shopping with your child over the summer but this may be a convenient option for some of you. Below are the supply lists for Powers, Harris and Nord and the ordering directions for each building if you are interested in the Innisbrook option. If you have any questions or need any assistance, please email Michael Molnar, Executive Director of Educational Services.
