Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
My name is Cindy Hansen, and I’m the principal of Pine Island Elementary School. I received a B.A. from University of Northwestern St. Paul, an M.A. from University of Illinois Springfield, and an Ed.D. from Bethel University.
My husband and I have two children, ages 12 and 14. They are the light of our lives, as I know your children are to you, and I am committed to helping your family have a successful year.
Great things are happening at Pine Island Schools! We are leading the way through our technology initiatives, STEM education, 100 Book Challenge, and positive behavior system (PBIS). Our instructional innovation is outstanding, yet we are also able to retain the close-knit community relationships upon which our school was built. The result is a high-performing school surrounded by an impressive network of supportive, caring individuals.
