Taste for Los Al

Los Al HS Hall of Fame



OUR Los Al (Organizations United to Renew Los Alamitos High School) was founded in 2001 by parents in the Los Alamitos High School community to support Los Al HS activities and improve facilities by getting Los Alamitos High School booster clubs to work together rather than as totally separate independent organizations.

Working with school officials, the group identified the most pressing needs for Los Al High facilities and has contributed money to improve them. Over the last few years the group has paid for an aerial survey of the entire campus, and worked with architects, booster clubs and school officials to organize a master plan for approved potential improvements. OUR Los Al has also donated money for a new scoreboard in the gym, and contributed money for field improvements for the LAHS Varsity soccer and lacrosse fields.

Working with the booster clubs, OUR Los Al has organized and hosted The Taste for Los Al, which was first held in October 2001 at the Rossmoor Center. It was attended by over 600 persons and raised over $20,000. The 2007 Taste sold over 2,800 tickets and raised over $230,000. In seven years, the Taste has helped raise over $800,000 for Los Al High School activities and facilities.

This year OUR Los Al has broadened its focus to accomplish the next two of its original goals – the creation of a Los Alamitos High School Hall of Fame and the creation of an active Griffin alumni association. We have been working with class reunion committees and active alumni and we now have a database of over 4,000 active alumni.

We have also set up sub-website that is dedicated to Los Al alumni. Now instead of having to go to many different websites, Los Al alums can go to one central website to find out all things Griffin, and also to learn about many possible ways to donate back to Los Al HIgh School programs.
