Befriend The New Kid

We all know what it feels like to be in an unfamiliar place

Next time you hang out with your friends, invite them along. You could even just ask for their phone number and send them a nice text.

When we moved up to high school, we were given ten new kids, because our class size/lineup of kids hadn't changed much in the last decade. Our school community is tight, and often referred to by students as a 'family'. The new kids, all coming from various public schools, were very overwhelmed and anxious. One even told me "There is no way I thought I would fit in, you've all grown so close." So I befriended not one, but all of them. Most of them have made the transition well, except for some residual social anxiety/paranoia.
