Welcome to 5th Grade!

Mrs. Cash

Welcome to another school year at Sour Lake Elementary.  My name is Renee Cash. This year I will be teaching 5th grade Math.  

I graduated from Lamar University-Beaumont in 2010 with a Bachelors degree in education. I also graduated from Lamar University-Port Arthur in 1993 with an Associates degree in accounting.  After working in the accounting field for several years, I finally decided that teaching was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.  This will be my 8th year of teaching and my fourth year at HJISD -- GO HAWKS!

This is a big year for students.  It is the last year to be in an elementary school and they are growing up so fast.  We will work very hard this year to get them completely prepared for middle school.  This year will also be a year of academic growth, greater self-confidence, improved social skills, and most of all self-reliance.   

Good communication between parent, teacher, and student is very important for your child’s academic success.  I am available to meet with parents during my conference period Monday - Friday at 2:35-3:10.  Please feel free to set up an appointment to meet with me during that time if you have any concerns or questions.  Unfortunately, I am not able to meet with parents before school starts in the morning, as students are coming in then and they need all of my attention.  For parents who prefer e-mail, I normally check my email several times a day and at night as well so this is often the quickest and most efficient way to get in touch with me.  Please feel free to email me at any time at:

Thank you in advance for all that you do to ensure that your child is successful at school.  I am certain that this will be a fantastic 5th grade year for all of us.
