Love Where You Live: Community

February 08, 2016

 

Can you answer this question.. Where do you live? Did you answer Wisconsin? Or Fort Atkinson? Something else? When someone asks me (Mr. Jesse) where I live, I say Greendale. Where you live can tell a lot about you! Since you live in Wisconsin do you like the Packers, Brewers, Badgers, and Bucks?

I bet if you go to another state and tell them that you are from Wisconsin they may say "The dairy state?" Dairy are things like milk and cheese. A saying about Wisconsin is that people in Wisconsin love their cheese! Do you like cheese?

There are many different kinds of cheese!? What kind is this?

How many seasons does Wisconsin have? If you said four, you are correct! Wisconsin in the summer can reach 100 degrees, but in the winter it can hit -30 degrees! Not many other states can say that!

Only in Wisconsin do you see people walking in shorts in the winter!

I get really excited and feel proud that I am from Wisconsin! I am also proud to be from Greendale! Where did you say you were from again? You go to school in Fort Atkinson! You should be proud of that! Are you from Barrie? Luther? Rockwell? Purdy? Each of these schools are from Fort Atkinson and together we should be proud of that!

Is this Luther, Barrie, Purdy, or Rockewell? It's Barrie!

Is this Luther, Barrie, Purdy, or Rockewell? It's Barrie!

All of you go to school in Fort Atkinson and I am sure most of you live here as well! Do you know why this town is called Fort Atkinson? I will tell you anyway! Fort Atkinson was named after General Henry Atkinson the commander of U.S. forces.

This is General Atkinson!

This is General Atkinson!

I hope you learned more about where you are from and are proud of it! If you do not mind the cold..Wisconsin is a great place to live and every city within Wisconsin has something to offer!
