Campus wide organizations

Within Las Lomas High School are four main campus-wide organizations that help the school in various ways. The PTSA is a combined effort of over 1,500 parent and student volunteers. This organization works toward improving education, health, and well-being of the students. Among other areas, they focus on campus communications, parent education programs, student scholarships, student health and safety programs, Reflections - art recognition and achievement, legislative advocacy, classroom support services, and staff appreciation events.

The Athletic Boosters also helps keep the campus running smoothly. This group provides the students and coaches with the needed support for their sports. The group provides trainer fees, repair and replacement of equipment, and awards and scholarships for the student athletes.

The Music Foundation provides support for high quality vocal and instrumental musical education and appreciation on campus. They not only work to spread appreciation within the campus but within the surrounding community as well. Their fund raising efforts go towards instruments, performances, and awards and scholarships for student musicians.

The Associated Student Body is a student government group composed of Las Lomas students who were voted for by their peers. Led by the Student Body President, they are in charge of creating an atmosphere of school spirit and appreciation. ASB opens up opportunities within the surrounding community for student volunteer service. Under special circumstances when communities are in need, ASB is in charge of arranging fundraisers for aid.
