That’s understandable. But you’ve made friends before and you’ll do it again. Say “hi,” smile, remember name, don’t talk too much about how great your old friends are and sign up for after-school activities—theater, newspaper, sports. Working with others on projects or in teams makes for easier bud-bonding opportunities. And in your attempt to be social, don’t let your schoolwork slip. Talk to teachers if you feel lost or if you’re at a different level than the rest of your class.

POSTED IN school, new school, the new girl code, how to make friends at a new school, rock your new school, advice from Carol Weston
I'm moving, too, and leaving all my old friends and school behind. I had such a great two years here, I don't know if my new house will be as good as this one. But this will be my 10th move and if I know how to deal with one thing, it's moving.
Here's a tip - when you move, nobody knows you! So it's a way to start out new! Ever wanted to cut your hair short, or go by Kate instead of Katie? Here's your chance! I'm not saying try to be someone your not (that never works), but start out right this school year, be yourself, and be confident. You'll have friends in no time!

I am sure it is stressful but I hope never have to deal with it. I have switched schools before but I knew some of the people so it wasnt that bad, but not knowing anyone would be kind of terrifying.
