After reading the motivational book “The Energy Bus” by Jon Gordon, students at Dogwood Elementary School had a special visit from the author on Nov. 6, thanks to the school’s PTA.
 
Gordon, who is a motivational speaker and also a Smithtown alumnus, spoke to students and staff about the five rules for his energy bus and how they can use them to create a positive attitude and experience every day. He talked to students about the bus rules of creating a positive vision; enjoying the ride; fueling the ride with positive energy; no bullies allowed; and loving your passengers.

His message to stay motivated by setting a positive vision for yourself resonated with students and staff alike. After talking about different ways of creating positive energy, the students had a brief question and answer session with Gordon.
