In November 2014, Ichabod Crane High 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 high 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, volunteering in the Pre-K classroom and in the community.
Kiley Melanson is a real trooper. In addition to being a great artist and hard worker, Kiley badly cut her hand while carving wood in class and needed to get stitches! However, that didn’t stop her from coming back to the next class and getting right back to her sculpture, this time wearing cut proof gloves, of course. Great persistence and a little bit of bravery!
Naiek Goico is a polite and great student. She always is grateful when help is given by myself or another student. She is a pleasure to have in class and always says have a nice day to me after class is over.
Gustavo Ramos is a very pleasant and friendly student in class. He has an infectious sense of humor, and he is always thinking of his friends and classmates. Gus shows generosity in class when he shares with others; he even gave away his copy of the book to someone who forgot theirs and he got a new one. Gus is willing to give to others and also share his thoughts and listen to peers in class.
Sophia Barmen is a very caring student; particularly with one of the other students in class. She always checks in with the student she sits next to to make sure they are having a good day. She also is willing to help whenever I ask for it.
Jon Hesler is a very generous person with his time. He is involved in many school activities, is always willing to share his thoughts and insight in class, and, if anyone needs his help, he is always willing to do whatever is needed.
Raymond Strawn has been providing our class with some “outside the box” approaches to some of the projects we have been working on and recently did a fantastic job coming up with some great survey questions for our class nuclear energy survey.
With a very generous spirit Analisa Martino is always giving back – to her school, to her friends, to her teachers, and to her community.
Dan Chen is an individual who generously gives of his time and wisdom. He is involved in many activities through the school and spends a lot of time helping out at his family’s restaurant. He is always willing to share in class while he is also willing to carefully consider the thoughts of his fellow students and, if another student doesn’t understand some aspect of class, Dan is always willing to explain and help the other student achieve better understanding.
