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 and a half years of this program, over 2,800 books have been provided to over 500 children. Most importantly, we gave some children the opportunity to own their very first book.
