(Minneapolis, January 24, 2022) Love. Motivate. Teach. Three words that embody Fusion Academy’s approach to learning will guide community outreach efforts for its newest school in Edina as it announces a nine-month campaign to pay it forward.
“Our doors are open to our students and families and our greater community,” said Fusion Academy Minneapolis Head of School Meghan Bennett. “Our Kindness Campaign will spread love and gratitude at the national, community, and individual level and we welcome community partners to join us.”
Fusion Academy promotes what it calls EPIC! Values. The acronym stands for excellence, passion, innovation and courage. The exclamation point emphasizes the importance of the stated values. In that vein, Fusion Academy Minneapolis, which opened its doors January 10, is looking for community partners to join its upcoming kindness events, which include:
- Kindness Cards: Fusion Academy Minneapolis will partner with local schools to create kindness cards for U.S. Military & First Responders. Fusion will host “Cards and Coffee” events on Valentine’s Day and February 14 and February 25. Because Valentine’s Day is not the only day, we want to express love and gratitude to our veterans, Fusion will ship the students works out in mid- March in partnership with Operation Gratitude. Sign up information can be found here.
- Community Kindness: COVID has heightened our awareness of social and emotional health and many students have struggled. Fusion Academy Minneapolis will partner with Hope House, a safe place for Twin Cities’ youth experiencing crisis. Fusion is seeking partners for the events and expects to finalize plans in March. Please email Linda Roslansky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- EPIC! Kindness: Fusion Academy Minneapolis invites families and community members to spend some time this summer learning about compassion and self-love at two events. August 1 Fusion will host community education night where participants will receive journals, resources, and hear from a guest speaker discuss what “self-love” looks like through the lens of self-compassion/kindness. On September 19 Fusion will host a follow-up reflection day with a celebration where participants will share how their self-love and kindness journey progressed. Please email Linda Roslansky at email@example.com.
