    Hello, All she has to do is be herself. It will take awhile to be accepted. She should join the marching band if they have one. The kids in band act in a tight group and they are all good kids. I can remember moving to Florida one son going into 6th grade and I had to leave him all alone in school, he made it to be very popular. My other son started his first year of high school.Actually with limited friends he studied more. They both did well. Good Luck
