Principal Franklin


Welcome to Cokato Elementary, I'm Principal Jerry Hanson.  At Cokato Elementary we are excited to help your students grow through excellence in education.

I've been in education for more than 30 years as an educator and principal in northern MN and ND and now as Cokato Elementary's Interim Principal.

A couple of fun facts about me, I officiated high school football games for almost 30 years.  I currently live in Frazee with my wife, Sharon, and love life on the lake!

You can contact me at 320-286-4100 Ext. 1304, email:  or by stopping by my office.  I look forward to seeing you around school!
