Staying in Touch

Jordan Shumard, Reporter

During summer, we don’t automatically see our friends every day. How do you stay connected with friends over the summer? Here’s some ideas. You could call or facetime and ask your friends when they are available. This way, you could plan to hang out, or call them just to talk. Another idea is having pen pals. It can be really fun to write to your friends, instead of just texting. My third idea is you could go on a road trip and see them, if they live far away. This only works if you are good friends and your parents are okay with this. It can be hard to see your friends over the summer, but it’s important to stay in touch so you can keep your friendships strong.
