Hutchinson Elementary

Tools and eResources for Virtual Instruction (August 2020)

WELCOME BACK HUTCHINSON FAMILY!

We will continue to utilize MYON, CLASSPASS, BEANSTACK, and AR for the '20-'21 school year!

CLASSPASS is a joint program from the Atlanta Public Schools and the Fulton County Library. Every APS student and staff member has fine free Fulton County Library access to digital resources and curbside book pick up. Please note: The following apps require the creation of a username/password: Mango languages, Hoopla, Learning Express Library, rb Digital, and Universal Class.


BEANSTACK is located in myBACKPACK and is an app that students, teachers, staff and parents can use to log the number of minutes read each day. The Beanstack App is used to keep up with our performance in the district's Race2Read campaign.


MYON will continue to be used as a way for students to access thousands of ebooks and articles based on their Lexile.

ATTENTION SCIENCE & SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHERS!

Britannica has produced creative Science and Social Studies content sets called LaunchPacks that are full of varied resources, such as informational texts, media, timelines, maps, and primary sources, articles, videos, and images. Each Pack contains a variety of resources that have been thoughtfully selected by Britannica editors to meet the curriculum needs of students at all grade levels.


  • Educators say LaunchPacks saves them countless hours finding authoritative, unbiased, and vetted resources around topics that correlate with their standards.
