HKA Shoe Closet

For parents/guardians:

We are excited to announce the opening of our HKA Shoe Closet. Shoe Closets Inc. is an organization that has provided shoes to thousands of youth in the Indianapolis area. Thanks to Shoe Closets Inc., HKA will have an inventory of shoes available for our students for the duration of the school year! Maybe your child has outgrown his or her shoes and finances are tight? Whatever the case, if you are interested in your kindergartener receiving a new pair of shoes, please send a note to your child’s teacher and we will do our best to match your child with a new pair of shoes. If you have any questions, please contact our School Social Worker, Mrs. Johnson, at 789-3568.
