Talbot Hill Educational Trust (THET) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports the MicroSociety Program at Talbot Hill Elementary - a Washington State Designated Innovative School. All of our students from Kindergarten through 5th grade create a ''micro-society'' with student-run nonprofits, governmental agencies, and for-profit businesses. We strive to give students practical applications of their math and reading skills, as well as an application of the language, social studies, science and technology-based skills they are learning inside the classroom. Their subjects become practical tools, rather than abstract concepts. Each month January through May, our program showcases the organizations' products or services during Marketplace. It's like Pike Place Market meets the energy of the New York Stock Exchange! THET welcomes mentors, partnerships and/or sponsors for our Micro organizations from the Renton Community.
