Tree planted to honor fallen Waldwick police officer

On Friday, November 14, a tree planting ceremony was held in honor of Police Officer Christoper Goodell.  This strong Copper Beech tree will be great reminder of Chris's strength, determination and courage.  The poem below was selected by the Goodell family and read at the ceremony.  
PLANT A TREE By David H. Wright
If when I am gone Thou Would'st  honor me Then plant a tree. Some highway, bleak and bare, Make green with leaves. So radiant and fair And full of leaves my monument will be, So ever full of tuneful melody. My monument will be  A sight most rare- Trees planted everywhere. A highway broad from city to the sea- Plant this in memory of me.

Drive Safer has created a special website address just for WHS.  Check out more information about keeping your teens safe on the road:

Drive Safer - Waldwick High School  Drive Safer hosts half-day sessions specifically designed for teen drivers to understand and experience car control in addition to safe driving fundamentals including good decision making, all related to the physical control of your vehicle in real-world conditions. Our event includes a classroom session including tech education and four (4) “behind the wheel” exercises with a certified high-performance driving instructor in a safe, controlled environment.
