    December 2019                                                

    The holidays are upon us. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break and best wishes for a happy holiday season.

    We would like to congratulate the members of the Timberwolves Girls Basketball team. Best wishes for a great season!

    Kudos to our All County Debate participants, as well as All- County Band, Chorus and Orchestra students who bravely auditioned and participated in these county wide events, wonderfully representing our school.


    There will be NO December PTO meeting. See you again in the New Year on January 8th at our 7pm meeting.

    Spirit Day

     Our next Spirit Day will be at Paisano’s Pizza (in Stafford Marketplace) on 12/4. Dine-in, carryout, or delivery on this day will support our Shirley Heim Middle Schoolers. (Online orders do not count, so you must phone in your orders). So friends and neighbors, save yourself from cooking (and dishes!) and support our neighborhood kids!!!

    A Special Thank You to the Aquia Harbour Evening Lions Club for their generous monetary donation to our Shirley Heim Middle School Nurse for much needed medical supplies. We also thank the Aquia Harbour Host Lions for their amazing donation supporting our Challenge Day.

    We look forward to our holiday concerts here in December by our talented Shirley Heim musicians. Good luck to the Orchestra, Chorus, and Band performers as they entertain us and show off their hard work this school year.

    Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all!!


    November 2019                                                  

    Congratulations to the members of the Shirley Heim Football Team, Cross Country Team, Volleyball Team and Field Hockey Team for a season well done!! We are so proud of our student athletes. And thank you to our parent and student volunteers who came out and worked concessions to make our home games great!

    Shirley Heim is very proud of our student musicians. Our students had a wonderful Chorus Concert last month. Our Pep Band worked hard, entertaining the crowds at our home football games. Our band students had an opportunity to perform at a Brooke Point High School football game. They even had an opportunity to shadow the band on the field as they marched their show. And congratulations to our students who tried out and made the Jazz Band. We are looking forward to the musician’s upcoming band and orchestra concerts next month. 

    Pink Week

    In October, Shirley C. Heim Middle School supported Breast Cancer Awareness, in honor of our former School Board Member, Shirley C. Heim, for whom our school was named. The students and staff showed their school spirit by wearing their pink spirit wear, locker decorating competitions, a Pep Rally, classroom donut parties, and themed announcements for Breast Cancer Awareness.
