Just turn on caching...

How To:
Yes turn on Caching.  As well tuning the cache and system memory to optimize performance is useful as the default install is resource conservative on modern hardware.  Also check out untangle.
Also you have to force all users to use squid; this way you will achieve the best of squid's cache.
Block direct access to port 80/443 for all users through your internet router
