Mrs. Madge Griffith
We Are the Griffith Eagles!
Madge Griffith Elementary was named after Mrs. Madge Griffith who was a principal in Brazosport ISD at Elizabeth Ney Elementary from 1960 to 1972. Mrs. Griffith taught first through fifth grades, and served as the Assistant Principal before becoming Principal.
Mrs. Griffith said in her autobiography that, “I owe my mother, daddy and brothers and sisters for helping me get through high school and college.”
In 1990, when the campus was opened, Marcus Stephenson, President of BISD School Board said, “Serving as principal of Elizabeth Ney Elementary School was the highlight in her life. The impact on education would be difficult to measure, as would be the impact on the young lives and teachers of those that Madge touched by being a positive role model as teacher, administrator and friend.”
Mrs. Madge Griffith’s portrait hangs in our front hallway today.
Educating and inspiring future leaders to succeed in an ever-changing world.

(Sung to "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee" tune-words by Mrs. Margaret Gaspard)
Eagles, Eagles! We're the Eagles Soaring high above the morn.
Flying, striving we are climbing, Going where our dreams are born.
With respect to self and others shines our light for all to see.
We are noble; we're TERRIFIC! We're the Eagles, we are free.
Eagles, Eagles! We're the Eagles, Reaching far beyond the stars.
Nothings stops us, we're determined; we'll break through those chains and bars.
Never quitting, always trying, yes we choose to do our best.
We are noble, we're TERRIFIC! We're the Eagles, We're the best.
