Riders of the Month

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.

Scroll past names to see pictures of the latest High School (Grades 9-12) Riders of the Month.


Timothy Spangler, 9th Grade

“Although Timothy is a fully remote student this year, he has been putting forth his best effort in and outside of class. He works hard to contribute to class discussions.”

Anna Siter, 9th Grade

“Anna is a quiet student who deserves recognition for being academically on top of her game. She strives to perform her very best, has a positive attitude, and is always engaged in the lesson.”

Darren Moon, 10th Grade

“Darren is a great kid who is always on top of his work and wants to do his best. He has a good sense of humor, and even when things get difficult he perseveres.”

Emma Scheitinger, 10th Grade

“Emma is one of the hardest working, most diligent, multi-talented students at ICC, and is completely worthy of recognition as Rider of the Month. Emma is a star student and multi-sport star athlete. ”

Jason Ingham, 11th Grade

“Jason participates well in class and has done some great presentations/projects for his Chemistry class. Jason has been super positive each day, and his effort and attitude have made the class more productive and enjoyable for all parties!”

Annabel Cleary, 11th Grade

“Annabel is a young woman who goes above and beyond in the classroom and her class activities. She is incredibly hard-working, and always seeks to help when there is something that needs to be done. She is an active participant in her class and in Model UN, playing a big part in the Mock Model UN as well as the Model UN Food Drive. She brought along her family’s springer van to the food drive, which helped us transport over a thousand pounds of goods to the Valatie Food Pantry! She’s always willing to give her all and put in the work.”

Darby Siver, 12th Grade

“Darby brings a positive attitude to class. She is always pleasant, works hard, and asks for help when she needs it. Looking a little deeper, it might be shocking to see this caring, gentle student credited with so many “kills”, but Darby has been a key member of the Ichabod Crane Varsity Volleyball team for four years. It’s not common to see an outside hitter with as many digs as kills, but Darby excels in both offense and defense. In past years, she also played setter because that is where her skills were needed. Darby is a skilled artist, and has recently won awards for photography.”

Joe Dolan, 12th Grade

“Joe is a great student and a really nice kid. He always participates in class, and he is always kind and supportive of his peers. Joe always seems to be in a good mood, and makes everyone around him have a better day with his smile and a kind word.”
