Subsequently, she completed her principal certification from Central Washington University in 2016.

Mrs. Luchini is excited to move into a principalship in Riverview. She has worked on a variety of curriculum adoption committees and has served as a leader at Cherry Valley. Additionally, she has devoted time to working to improve the school’s safety plan and helped the school grow in curricular areas with an emphasis on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). “I am so excited to continue our work together at Cherry Valley as the principal and making our school a model of excellence,” said Mrs. Luchini.

Riverview School District Superintendent, Dr. Anthony L. Smith, stated, “Mrs. Luchini emerged as the number one candidate during a very thorough and competitive interview process. She has demonstrated a track record of hard work, expertise, and most importantly, a relentless commitment to the best education for each student.” Mrs. Luchini will be taking over for current principal, Heather Sanchez, who is leaving Cherry Valley after two years to accept a position as Director of Accelerated Programs, Choice, and Innovation in the Lake Washington School District.
