(Oct. 8, 2015) This year, Ichabod Crane Middle School proudly began a new tradition of honoring our students that demonstrate our school district’s mission and community values. These students have been recognized by middle school teachers and staff for exemplifying what it means to be an Ichabod Crane Rider. They exhibit all-around good character, morals and demonstrate Rider values and Rider pride in the classroom, in sports, arts, music, and in the community. Learn More

(Sept. 18, 2015) During two morning assemblies, IC students in grades 6-12 attended an anti-bullying character program in the high school auditorium.
Through the support of the ICC PTA's Arts & Enrichment Program, Mike Donahue, who is the executive director and founder of R5 Productions, presented his "Walk A Mile" anti-bullying program to our students. The program focuses on respect and diversity. R5 is a Omaha, NE based, nonprofit organization dedicated to reaching out and enriching the lives of young people.

(August 10, 2015) The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and the Ichabod Crane Central School District are hoping to expand the "BackPack Program" to Ichabod Crane Elementary/Middle School in October 2015. The program provides backpacks filled with food that is child-friendly, shelf-stable, and easily-consumed. Bags are packed each week by school staff and discreetly distributed to participating children every Friday afternoon.
Since Ichabod Crane’s "BackPack Program" is funded entirely by local donations, the success of the program depends on fundraising efforts. To see how you can help support the BackPack Program in our schools, view the flyer here. All donations are tax deductible.
Ichabod Crane Primary School has been involved in the program since 2011 and is coordinated there by Sandra Funk.
