In 2020-21, SMILE Club Teachers can obtain membership forms from students via hard copy or online using Ideal-Logic. Only new SMILE Club Students will need to complete the membership form.
We have outlined a new process for obtaining membership forms for your students that we hope will make it easy for you to sign-up your club members for 2020-2021.
1. Choose if you would like to use Ideal-Logic or paper forms for membership. You should only do one or the other. Please note: Ideal-Logic will be used to manage clubs and club logs, and teachers will have access to it regardless if you use it for membership forms.
2. Review the membership lists emailed to you listing the last three years of SMILE students from your club.
3. Provide a list of students continuing in your SMILE club back to the SMILE office. SMILE will automatically renew their membership in Ideal-Logic. They will not need to complete any new membership forms this year.
4. Any student not on the lists will need to fill out an application for the 2020-21 school year. This will be done either using Ideal-Logic or a paper application form based on your choice in step #1. If a paper application is filled out, it can be returned in one of the following ways:
a. Emailed to SMILE - firstname.lastname@example.org
b. Emailed back to the teacher and then sent to the SMILE office. Teachers should send them as they receive them to the SMILE email address or via U.S. mail.
c. Student mail membership form to SMILE via postage-paid envelope.
When you receive your box of kit supplies, you will find an envelope with paper membership forms and postage paid return envelopes. You can also download the membership form below.

As requested, we also have a SMILE Clubs promo video on the SMILE website or via this YouTube link. Its target audience is potential first-time SMILE students of all grade levels.
Online membership applications: Returning teachers will login to their SMILE dashboard using the login name and password they setup last year. New teachers will be invited to setup an account in Ideal-logic to manage their club applications and club logs.
On your club dashboard, go to "Membership Form Link" and copy the link for your club. Each club has a URL specific to their club that can be sent to parents to complete the online application.
