In the fall of 2018, the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation added a new funding priority called Heather's Books. Launched in memory of Ikard Elementary teacher Heather Holland, this legacy program continues her dream of instilling a love of reading in children.
The Weatherford ISD Education Foundation gives each Pre-K student a $10 Heather's Books voucher to purchase books from their school's fall and spring book fairs.
In the first two years of this program, over 2,100 books have been provided to 380 children. Most importantly, we gave some children the opportunity to own their very first book.
