Dorian's dream day

Great things happen in 27J schools every day. But recently, the Thimmig Elementary School and 27J communities came together to watch something truly amazing—a dream coming true.
Dorian, a second grader with leukodystrophy, was flown to Tampa Bay for a weekend to meet the entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers team and favorite player Tom Brady. The trip is part of the dream experience Dorian received from Dream On 3 , an organization that enriches the lives of kids with life-altering conditions by making their sports dreams come true.
When Dorian's school team found out he had been selected by Dream On 3, they wanted to send him off in style. The entire school—plus band members, cheerleaders, and student athletes from Brighton High School, Prairie View High School, and Riverdale Ridge High School—came together for a moving, surprise assembly to celebrate Dorian and his dream.
