Send us an email so we can work with you to introduce SHORT to your students
SHORT will be making visits to elementary and primary schools, virtually at first and then in person once safety measures allow. Stay tuned on SHORT’s Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube pages or by checking the website for booking information post-reading pep rally!
SHORT the Squirrel is a non-profit founded in 2020 and was created after a Mobile County Assistant District Attorney, saw young children spending large unoccupied blocks of time in the courtroom. Her mother Monica Anderson Young and Dr. Dee Dupree Bennett created SHORT the Squirrel as a mechanism to fill the gap with “edutainment” and are establishing SHORT as literacy’s identifiable, lovable mascot for children. The first SHORT activity booklet, SHORT in Court, will be released in all 67 Alabama county court systems in early 2021. The SHORT team seeks to identify other fillable gaps for fun literacy-building moments. We are so proud to partner with educators like you on this journey.
