Maine Department of Education is Inviting All Maine Schools & Community Partners to Help Celebrate The 4th Annual International SEL DAY 


A Message from the Maine Department of Education

As part of SEL Day 2024, the Maine Department of Education invites you to notice, highlight, and celebrate the leadership your students demonstrate each day in the classroom, their homes, and in their communities. Highlight these moments on your school social media and tag Maine DOE, using #SELday.





A Message from Kellie Bailey, SEL Specialist

Calling all Maine Schools! Maine DOE SEL Specialist Kellie Doyle Bailey is inviting you to help celebrate International SEL Day 2024 with SEL4US and CASEL. This year's theme centers the leadership of our students. In the classroom, at home and in their communities. Check out the SEL4US Toolkit for activities and ways to earn badges for your school!


The Maine Department of Education is excited to participate in the 4th annual International SEL Day celebration again this year. The theme of this year’s event is Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Leaders.

We recognize that Maine educators and community partners celebrate and honor Maine students daily, helping youth realize their individual capacity to become “Leaders of their own Learning.”

This year the Nation is joining together to showcase, promote, advocate for, and support SEL for adults and youth.

This work begins with us, the adults, mentoring and guiding youth in all areas of their development. When adults prioritize connection, mattering, and a sense of belonging, students can feel safe to explore their leadership potential.

We invite you to take part in celebrating SEL Day 2024 by connecting with your colleagues and your students to highlight their leadership in their homes, schools, and communities. The Maine Department of Education encourages school communities to showcase their student's leadership by sharing highlights to their school/district social media and tagging Maine DOE using #SELday.
