For the eighth consecutive year, middle school students from The Sharon Academy (TSA) will be performing their circus at The Sharon Academy High School on Route 14 in Sharon. Troy Wunderle, Big Top Tour Artistic Director of Circus Smirkus and the Director of Clowning for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, has returned to TSA to lead the students in creating a hilarious circus which consistently draws huge crowds. Come early to experience the pre-circus carnival – a wonderful collection of student-run games and activities for children.

Light refreshments will be available for purchase. Fun for the whole family. Check out the photos on TSA’s Facebook page:

*Lunch Program: We are developing a middle school lunch program beginning early in April. It is our goal for all students to have a healthy lunch option. We are fundraising to cover the cost of providing meals to all TSA middle school families who qualify for free and reduced lunch according to federal guidelines. Lunches will be provided at a low cost for those families who do not qualify. It is our hope that this program will also be available at the high school beginning in the fall.
