Welcome Ms. Slosson

Dear Empire Students and Families,

 I hope you are all having a fun and relaxing summer break! We are so excited to welcome you  all back to campus on Friday, July 22, 2022 for our first day of school!

 We are equally excited to announce that Empire has added an additional assistant principal to our campus to help serve our students and staff. Congratulations to Brooke Slosson who was selected to serve in this new position.

 When we met with our hiring committee, we identified 3 key areas to select our best candidate:
relationships, culture, and leadership. Ms. Slosson gave examples of how she has strengthened
and developed these areas in her past performance, as well as shared how she will intentionally
focus on these areas at Empire. It was apparent to the committee that Mrs. Slosson shares the
values of our mission statement and was the exact candidate that we were looking to hire.

 Ms. Slosson is transitioning from Mesquite Elementary School, where she taught in a variety of
grade levels. Having worked in the Vail School District for the last 9 years, Ms. Slosson has a
solid understanding of the work ethic required for this position, as well as the culture that we are looking to uphold within the district and on campus. Ms. Slosson completed her second graduate degree in Educational Administration in September of 2021 through Grand Canyon University.

 Ms. Slosson officially joined our administrative team on July 1 and is eager to get to know our
students, families and staff.

 Please enjoy your last days of summer break. We can’t wait to see you all back on campus!
 Sincerely,

 Matt Donaldson
 Principal
