From here, the next screen will prompt you to enter your log in and password. Your log in is the Parent's Last Name in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.

You may request this account to be set up through the District Office as well.

What is the process for lettering in Theater?
How can I earn points towards a school letter?

• Help with special events and productions
• Participate in High School Theater Productions
• Attend other productions (local, colleges, etc.)
• Participate in other productions in the community
• Attend theater workshops/clinics

How many points do I need to earn a letter?

You need a total of 20 points to receive a letter. Point values vary according to the activity you participate in.

What if I don’t get 20 points in one year, do I have to start all over?

No. You can accumulate points from year to year. Your point accumulation begins in 7th grade. When you have accumulated 20 points you will earn a letter for that year. Extra points then carry over to the next year and you can accumulate points until you have enough for another year. You can only get one letter in Speech & Drama per year.

Overall Procedure

1. In order to letter you must earn 20 points.

2. If 20 points are not earned during the designated 12-month period, the points will carry over to the next year.

3. Activities done independently of Mabel-Canton Speech and Drama can earn points, but will not be awarded until you submit them for Ms. Harman’s approval.

4. Participation in drama productions can either be performance or technical.

The point values are as follows:

1 pt- meetings, field trips, workshops, additional help on productions outside your primary production role

2 pt- participation in community productions, drama classes and camps.

4 pt- Full participation in Mabel-Canton Speech and Drama events (One Act Play, Fall or Spring Production, and Speech.)
