Andi Wilhelm, President 2016-2017

This is my first year serving on the Palm Valley PTO Board. I’ve served as a room parent two years ago,  and last year I served at the Room Parent Committee Chair. My husband Joe and I have 2 Thunderbirds- Caleb is in 3rd grade and Hannah is in 1st. I’ve had such a great experience getting involved with PTO and PVE staff. I adore this school! I am excited to help get more parents and teachers involved.



Heidi Polson, Vice President 2016-2017

This is my first year at PVE as a parent and PTO board member. My daughter, Willow, is in Kindergarten and my youngest, Charlee, is 4 and in preschool. I have been very pleased with how my daughter has grown with her education in just a short amount of time here at PVE. I decided to join the board to be more involved with the school and help out as much as a I can.

Denise Kowanetz, Treasurer 2016-2017

This is my second year on the PTO Board as Treasurer.  I was the committee co-chair for Spirit Wear and the Golf Tournament last year.  My daughter is in 2nd grade, my son is in Kindergarten, and our oldest is a Senior at Millennium High School.  Palm Valley has welcomed us with open arms and we are so proud to call Palm Valley Elementary our school.  I look forward to a great year and working with the wonderful parents and staff we have here at PVE.  Come join the PTO and make a difference in our kid’s school experience.


Allyson Thompson, Secretary 2016-2017

This is my first year on the Palm Valley PTO board. I have loved being chair of the Teacher Appreciation Committee the past two years and decided to jump in to get more involved this year. Our family has been a part of the Palm Valley Community for the past 4 years and we feel so grateful to be part of such a welcoming and supportive school. My son Christian is in 4th grade, my daughter Morgan is in kindergarten, and my youngest Ella has one more year before she starts as a Thunderbird.


Ashley Piper, K-2 Representative 2016-2017

I’m so excited to serve our PVE community in my first year on the PTO Board. My husband Burton and I have two great kiddos! Our daughter Kennedy is in First Grade and our son Callen is starting as a Thunderbird in Kindergarten – both in Traditional Academy! In our first year at Palm Valley, I found volunteering with the PTO helped me meet new friends, support our classroom and plug in to the incredible school we are so blessed to be attending. I love the variety in volunteer opportunities and always had fun! I am excited about my K-2 Representative role as a chance to further support the teachers and interface with other Palm Valley parents! I would love to help you find the perfect opportunity to connect and cannot wait for another incredible year as Thunderbirds!


Kristy Birschbaach, 3-5 Representative 2016-2017

Hello Thunderbird Families! My name is Kristy Birschbach, and I am very excited to be joining this amazing PTO board, in addition to leading the Redemptions committee. Although this will be my first year on the board and serving on a committee, I have always been active on campus and was a room parent for two years. My husband, Jason, and I have 3 boys, all of whom are attending Palm Valley. Our twins Jaycob and Jaxson are new Thunderbirds having started Kindergarten this year, while our older son Jaydn is continuing to soar in 3rd Grade. This is our fourth year at the school, and we absolutely love the amazing staff and the welcoming sense of community found on the Palm Valley Elementary campus!
