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.


Ichabod Crane Riders of the Month are posted the month following the one they are recognized for. Scroll past the names to see pictures of the January 2021 ROTM.

Alexa Meza, 9th Grade

“Alexa is a wonderful student to have in class. She is a dedicated learner who does everything she is asked. Her work is excellent and she is always positive to every person she encounters.”

Loren Johnson, 9th Grade

“Loren Johnson has been on top of her work since the beginning of the year. She is always willing to volunteer and answer questions whether in the classroom or on a meet. Loren asks follow-up questions when she gets something wrong to make sure she understands where her error came from. She has been an ideal student and remains vigilant even while being fully remote now. Loren is willing to help her peers and gets along with everyone in her class. She is a great example of what a Rider stands for!”

Alyssa Seger, 10th Grade

“Alyssa is to be commended for the great turnaround that we have seen this year. She is doing an awesome job working both in-person and remotely, and we are very proud of her. Alyssa, keep up the great work! ”

Gianna Sandagato, 10th Grade

“Gianna Sandagato is a very hard-working and accomplished student. She has a great attitude toward school and works very hard to make sure her grades are high. She is a role model to her peers.”

Skylar Scace, 11th Grade

“Skylar has such a great attitude, is always attentive, and gives her all each and every day! What a great young person! Skylar is always smiling and truly leads by example. ”

Val McEwan, 11th Grade

“Val is a very responsible student who takes her education seriously. She is proactive in her studies and her grades reflect her efforts. She always contributes to class discussion and provides thoughtful insights when making her contributions.”

Cate Tennier, 12th Grade

“Cate is a dynamic person who is kind, attentive and helpful. She is a pleasure to have in class and I admire her enthusiasm.”

Austin Zlomek, 12th Grade

“Austin is an incredibly hardworking young man who keeps his head down and does everything that’s asked of him and more. He’s often overlooked because of his quiet demeanor, but in class he’s a leader in both work ethic and class discussion. During these COVID months, Austin has striven to work to an even higher level in class. At times like these, it’s easy to overlook someone like Austin who is stalwart in your class, but it’s more important to acknowledge him for continuing to meet and exceed the standards and challenges he encounters.”
