Ichabod Crane Middle School Announces May Rider of the Month Students

(June 12, 2017) Each month, Ichabod Crane Middle School honors students that demonstrate our school district’s mission and community values. These students have been recognized by middle 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, and in the community.

Students receive a certificate, a letter from Congressman Chris Gibson and an ice cream coupon donated by Stewarts.

We are pleased to announce the Rider of the Month students for May and what teachers had to say about them.

He has a strong work ethic and puts forth consistent effort to do well in his classes. He is kind to others and has been especially helpful to new students. He helps with the Therapy Dog program. He is always the first to volunteer to help others but does not seek out recognition for what he does (for example, few know that Tyler has taken responsiblity for changing the wing's bulletin board each month). It has been a pleasure to get to know him this year!
