Our day at school is over . . . her day has iust begun. She goes about her work quietly
She can always find time in her tight schedule to grant personal favors. Many students
come to her to ask for one of the rooms to be opened for a forgotten sweater or book. Others
come for advice.
Somehow she finds time for the personal touches. She always seems to notice flowers or
plants that need to be watered. Many teachers have said that once over lightly is not enough
Mrs. Velasquez has worked in the West Covina School District for seventeen years. Eight
of those years have been at Coronado. It has been long, hard work, but she has enioyed every
minute of it.
With her friendly smile and warm disposition, everyone finds room in their hearts for Mrs.
We take deep pride in dedicating this 1967 yearbook to you-
It has been my pleasure to be associated with Mrs. Velasquez as a fellow member of the
W. C. School District Staff. Her assigned responsibilities have always been completed in an
exemplary manner. "Tommy" has not been satisfied with meeting minimum responsibility.
She has set and continues to set the excellent example for us all. I value her friendship not
iust because she is a very competent associate, but because she has always conveyed an image
most complimentary to her gender. She is truly a fine lady and very deserving of this recog-
nition from the hundreds of us. Bless you, "Tommy," Fred C. Shrader.
Tomasa Velasquez-"Tommy" to all of us-has been a valued employee of the West Co-
vina Unified School District since 1951, and she has served Coronado School loyally, faithfully,
and well since 1959. This yearbook is dedicated to her with affection and appreciation by the
student body of Coronado School. All her friends and co-workers in the district ioin in this
expression of esteem. Sincerely, Clifford S. Thyberg, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools
Tomasa Velasquez has worked with me from time to time over the past seventeen years.
She has always been dependable, has done excellent work, and has been a loyal friend to both
teachers and students. Gerald Smith
To the eyes and ears of Coronado School Tommy's contribution indicates loyalty, concern
and dedication. "Champ" Means
The dedication of a school's yearbook is one of the greatest honors that can be bestowed
on a school employee. The choice of Tommy Velasquez is an excellent one. I have known
Tommy and worked with her for many years at Coronado School. She was always very de-
pendable, friendly, and an excellent worker. All of the students, teachers, and other staff mem-
bers throughout the years had high praise for her as an employee and as a wonderful person
to know. I know that I speak for everyone who has ever known her when I say it is very
difficult to lose such a kind, and capable employee, and we would like to wish her many years
of happiness. Tommy, the best of everything to you always. Peter Masonis

The title of our yearbook reflects the Spanish influence which
is apparent in our school name "Coronado" and our team name the
"Matadors." In keeping with this tradition we have named our
book of memories "La Faena."
The end of the bull fight, la faena, is full of suspense and antici-
pation of the outcome. Thegmatador has the chance to prove that
he is an artist at bull fighting. The end of the school year is very
exciting and important to ui We too are nearing the "moment of
truth" as we approach the last days of this school year.
We hope that in future ysears you will look through your year-
book and be reminded that!you have lots of good memories which
made the school year l96Q67 at Coronado very worthwhile.
