Switching schools is hard -- new friends, new classes, new teachers, new stress. Young people in foster care are more likely to switch schools -- sometimes more than five times.

Helping a new student feel welcomed and accepted can make the transition easier, especially when a lot of things are changing.

Create a welcome sheet with tips and insider information to help students feel welcome when they join midway through the school year.
