The homerooms then presented the lesson to the student body and were judged based on a rubric that was given out prior to the challenge. The winning homeroom was treated to a special lunch and a sign over the door until the next challenge was announced. This promoted learning across the grade levels and further teaching of the expectations. EVALUATION: BABY PBIS’ WELLNESS CHECK-UPS OUR NEW BABY!
