In the Fall of 2007, inspired by Krueger Middle School’s KSAT program, Bush Middle School launched NEISD’s first interactive digital online newspaper – The WATCHDOG. Having seen some of the awesome articles on the Falcon’s .pdf newspaper edition posted online, Bush set off to create a completely new online experience. Using Joomla’s content management system and partnering with Lopez Middle School, both online papers were an instant hit. After two years of keepng an eye on Bush News, The Watchdog was put on hold due to lack of server space and security concerns. With the opening of Johnson High School, NEISD decided to pilot a program to create an online Newspaper that would be supported by the district by providing server space and a secure WordPress system. The program has proven to be a success as all high schools have versions of online newspapers and recently middle school’s were invited to participate. So, The WATCHDOG Online is BACK! We would like to thank Joseph Johnson for supporting the online newspapers. A VERY special thank you goes out to Marcella Muncy. Without the gracious help of Ms. Muncy, our online paper would not exist. We thank you and appreciate you more than you know. We hope you enjoy your online experience and will work diligently to bring you up to date news on all things Bush.
