Encouraging friends and other students

Here are some things to keep in mind concerning your friends and other students.

A new school year also means new friends and it’s a good time to reconnect with those you’ve missed over the summer.1

If you notice them feeling a little down, become a support to your classmates by being the positive friend in your group and keep them encouraged with texts and memes! Get to know your peers and find common interests. You can even tag them in inspirational content online.  

After school, make plans to hang out! Host a virtual watch party over the weekend or attend a virtual event together and celebrate the online fun happening in the city! 

While making new friends, remember your old ones and check in with anyone you haven’t heard from. You can even go old school and mail a card, especially if it’s for their birthday! Cherish each moment and the people in it!
