Welcome to the 2015-2016 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 I’m currently working on an Ed.D. from Bethel University.
My husband and I have two children, ages 10 and 12. 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 isa high-performing school surrounded by an impressive network of supportive, caring individuals.
