Some elementary school promotions -- or graduations -- were becoming a bit too sophisticated. In her report to the board, district Assistant Supt. Alice Petrossian explained that a survey in June found "a wide spectrum of practices for sixth-grade promotional ceremonies and activities, many which did not adhere to district administrative regulations."

I'm not a Montrose merchant, but I'm related to one, so let me take a crack at answering Maria Leinenweber's question about what John Drayman meant in his letter rhetorically asking which events Mrs. Leinenweber would like the merchants' association to eliminate.

Family Festival issue has been beaten to death There needs to be another point of view expressed regarding the Family Festival and its costs (losses). This event was planned as a promotion, not as a fund-raiser. The Montrose Shopping Park Assn. assesses itself to pay for promotions.
