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.

While walking by Mia Batts and Ariana Melanson in the hallway, I saw Mia reach out and gently tap Ariana on her back and said to her, “It’s a new semester, you got this.” I felt how wonderful the support she is giving in that moment, and how observing that uplifted my day as well.
