  • Kevin McCarthy to visit UPES for "I Believe In Me!" event on October 19th

    A huge thank you to our PTSA for sponsoring our upcoming "I Believe in Me!" event starring musician Kevin McCarthy!  One of the most important life lessons in a young person's development is building self-esteem. "Believing in Yourself" is the first step towards happiness and a rewarding life. More than just "feeling good", students will learn the building blocks of life-long self-esteem in a simple, easy to understand approach. Drawing on personal experience, Kevin reveals the many secrets of his successes and inspires students to understand how to believe in themselves. Kevin excites audiences with fun, familiar, and upbeat songs and actively engages the students for an enjoyable and memorable learning experience. For more information check out his web page at:
