Our Principal



Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Tonya Grimes, Principal

Dear Allenbrook Elementary Community,


It is an honor and privilege to join the Allenbrook Elementary School community as the new principal.  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to transition to this great school with persevering students, an extremely dedicated staff, and a supportive school community.  I have previously served in assistant principal, dean, facilitator, instructional coach, and teaching positions in CMS during my 20-year tenure.


Along with teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Allenbrook by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors – staff, students, and parents – feels welcome and is excited to be here.  This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. 


During my transition, my primary goal is to get to know the Allenbrook community and for you to get to know me.  I bring a belief that students are at the center of all school-related decisions.  I am excited to unite my experience, my openness to learn, and my student-centered approach to supporting the Allenbrook Gators community.  Because the relationship between families and the school is vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible.  I look forward to meeting you soon as we grow forward together!
