“School Made Easier! with Web Site”
Computers are the wave of the future. The new age of teaching has arrived, and the question is, are Kernersville schools ready for this new form of teaching? The administration and staff of Kernersville Elementary School have made the first step into the future this year by placing teachers supply lists online for parents and students to acquire before school open house.
“I do think that having the teacher supply lists online will be very helpful for both parents and teachers”, says Angela Hester, Vice President of the school’s PTA.
The teacher’s supply lists is not the only helpful information that can be found on the school’s website. With the help of Rich Blakemore of Rich’s Web Design, Kernersville Elementary School has been living up to their goal, which is to become more technologically advanced.
“Kernersville is a technology school and so one of the things we were trying to do is to utilize the Internet to keep parents informed about what is going on at their child’s school”
Although most schools now have their own web site, Kernersville Elementary School’s web site is more than just a brief history or fact sheet. It is a tool for both parents and children to utilize as a learning facility about the school, staff and academic projects.
The site is an interactive site with a link to every question that parents may have. “The school overall puts a lot of emphasis on using the Internet.”, says Hester.

Kernersville Elementary on World-Wide Web
“Have you been wondering when our town, and our school system will arrive in the 21st century? KERNERSVILLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL is there! We now have a professionally designed and maintained web site on the Internet: http://mts.admin.wsfcs.k12.nc.us/kvillees/index.html
Two weeks ago, Kernersville Elementary School’s site went live. It is packed with information not only for parents, but also for students, faculty, and especially the community….
Designed by Rich Blakemore (www.RichsWebDesign.com) pro-bono, KES’s site will be a great asset. When you a parent, have a question about an upcoming event and it is midnight, what have you done in the past? Waited until the next day, called the school, gotten a busy signal, bothered the secretaries, or even worse, bothered a teacher? NOT ANYMORE! Check the web site!
What happens when it starts to snow at midnight, and you are not sure about school the next day? Are you going to watch TV … all the way down to the WSFCS announcement? NO! Are you going to waste time and listen to the radio for 20-30 minutes? NO! Check the web site! …”

“Local Web Designer Open for Business”
If you want a professional web site for your business, you can now turn to Rich’s Web Design. Rich Blakemore recently started his own business because, “Kernersville has many businesses, and very few of them have a quality web site. There are plenty of web sites that are homemade or of poor quality.”
Rich’s Web Design already has a few clients including a local chiropractor, a medical products business, a High Point furniture business, a local engineer and others. He also can take an existing site and redesign it. Information regarding Rich’s Web Design services, procedures, and prices, can be found at www.RichsWebDesign.com . Rich hopes to gain many new clients in the Kernersville area as well as others in the Triad.
