How can I help my 8 yr old daughter to make new friends at school

I am a new member and I am seeking some advice! My daughter is still transitioning to her new school she started 2nd grade two months after school started last year in 2015.
She just started 3rd grade 3 days ago and she came home very sad and was in tears to find out that the only friend she talked too and hanged out with is not talking to her anymore. We have no idea what happened. They were really good friends and
had playdates together, It has really affected her emotionally and has told me comments such as, “I don’t want to go to that school anymore.”
She has struggled with shyness and has a hard time approaching kids. She does stay at the afterschool program and I’m hoping she can make new friends there. This is her second year in cheerleading and that is helping her to get distracted from the school issues she is having. I’m lost as what to do to help her. It breaks my heart to see her down :( Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
