Both of my children attended Cash from kindergarten through fifth grade. I was elected PTA president for a two year term, and remained on the Executive Board afterwards. At that time, parent involvement was extremely high, and our fundraising for quality playground equipment, and an up-to-date, modern computer lab was extremely successful, along with the Reflections program. Most teachers were Nationally Certified, and many AG certified beyond those teaching AG level classes. The arts are EXTREMELY important at Cash, and the different disciplines of art are taught by very gifted people that instill a love for music, visual art, and writing. We always were at the top in state rankings for test scores, etc., and began the Multiple Intelligences style of teaching and learning...way ahead of our time for a small town. I am proud to say that my kids were educated at the BEST elementary school in Forsyth County. I even drove my son from Winston-Salem every day; 20 minutes each way (after moving from Kernersville), for two years to continue his education there, when he could have gone to the neighborhood school, ranked as one of the top in the state as well, but we LOVED Cash.
