Meet the Principal - Michael Bauschka

  • Michael Bauschka Dear DeGrazia Families,


    I am thrilled to be the new principal of DeGrazia Elementary School.  As a member of this community for the last 11 years, and as a father whose own two children attended DeGrazia,  I look forward to continuing the 30 years of tradition of excellence that we have come to expect and demand at DeGrazia.

    I am looking forward to an exciting year.  I know that by working together we will strive to create a safe, supportive, and academically rigorous educational community.  Our faculty and staff is deeply committed to providing a quality educational experience for our children in a safe and supportive environment.  We believe that the key to successful teaching is understanding and building a deep and meaningful relationship with our students. Instrumental in guiding us in this journey is the Marana Unified School District Roadmap to Excellence and Goals, our own school-wide goals, and the active involvement of the community in which we serve.

    We greatly welcome the participation of our families in a variety of areas and levels at DeGrazia.  We want you to think of it as your school!  There are multiple opportunities for you to volunteer in the classroom, playground, cafeteria, or office, as well as in attending our many activities or events, and/or becoming a member of the parent teacher organization (PTO).    We encourage you to communicate with us at any time and please refer to our website for a variety of useful information. 

    It is a deep honor for the entire DeGrazia Faculty and Staff to be entrusted with inspiring and educating our future, your precious child(ren).  Should you have any questions, concerns, suggestions please feel free to contact me.  

    For the good of our children,

    Michael Bauschka
