I am new to La Cueva and I am having a hard time finding friends. I feel isolated during the day and do not have anyone to talk to. Please help with any suggestions.

Welcome to La Cueva High School new students and incoming freshmen. This is a big school with lots of opportunities and activities. However, sometimes making new friends does not come as quickly as a person may want it to happen.

Making new friends takes time and effort on each person’s part. In order to meet new people, you need to show some self-confidence and a positive attitude. Be friendly, smile and say hello to other students. Remember their names and give them honest compliments. Start up a conversation to see if you have any common interests. When working in a classroom’s group setting, get to know the other students in the class.

Most importantly, get involved in La Cueva’s school activities. We have sports, club activities and great opportunities for community service. Students can talk with the guidance counselor, teachers, and activities office to seek out ways to get more involved at LCHS and meet some great people in the process.

Above all else, be yourself and let other students get to know you.
