Progress on the new Ichabod Crane Marching Band uniforms designed by FJM Uniforms is moving right along!
The sample uniform used to size our Marching Band/Color Guard students for their individual outfits recently arrived in the district and it looks amazing! We knew the uniforms would look great based on the concept sketch (scroll down to our original post for it) but seeing the fitting sample in person has exceeded our expectations! Below are two of our high school students trying on the sample uniform for their fittings. Thank you to Jeanne (left) and Bethany (right) for modeling the spiffy new uniform!

We are excited to announce the Ichabod Crane Marching Band and Color Guard will be receiving new uniforms!
The concept art pictured below is the new uniform for the Marching Band musicians, the concept art for our Color Guard students is still in the works. Thank you so much to FJM Uniforms for their beautiful work so far on designing the new uniforms!
The sample uniform based on the concept art is currently being made and will arrive in the district a few weeks from now. The next step from there is sizing our students for their individual uniforms and placing the final order. It will then be several months before all the final uniforms arrive in the district during the second half of the school year.
The current Marching Band and Color Guard uniforms have served Ichabod for 40 years and students have been expressing a desire to update them for some time. The students cannot wait for their new uniforms to arrive so they can display their Rider Pride in an all new fashion and remind people that music is alive and well in Ichabod Crane!
The cost of the uniforms is generously supported by two grants – one from the Ichabod Crane Central School Arts and Humanities Fund of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and another from The Bank of Greene County – and the Ichabod Crane Central School District itself.
