Whenever you pass someone in the hallways of your school or walking down the sidewalk, smile and say hi. It doesn’t matter if the other student is older or younger or if you know them or not. Saying hello will make them feel comfortable and welcomed.
If you’re walking with a group of friends and another student walks by, it is especially important to smile and say hi. A group is very intimidating to a person walking alone, so try to make the other student comfortable as you pass by. Think about how you would feel if you were the student walking alone.
