Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the 2018-2019 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 amazing teenagers.  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 technology initiatives, language immersion, makerspace with STEM instruction, 100 Book Challenge, and a state-recognized 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.
