Riders of the Month

Ichabod Crane Middle School is proud to honor our students who 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.

The program complements the Rider of the Month program launched at Ichabod Crane High School a few years ago. Students receive a certificate as well as an ice cream coupon donated by Stewarts.
