Welcome to the Canyon Creek Health Room !

My name is Helen Ziemkowski and I am the nurse here at Canyon Creek. The children know me as Mrs. Z.  This is my 17th year as the nurse at Canyon Creek and I love working with your children.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Seattle University in 1972. My husband, Gordon, and I have three sons - Josh, age 36; Adam, age 33; Nathan, age 30. Josh lives in Washington DC; Adam & his wife, Mika, recently moved here from Bolivia and have a daughter, Kira; Nathan is a 2nd grade teacher at Snoqualmie Elementary.

My goals as the nurse at Canyon Creek are:

  • to keep your children safe and healthy
  • to manage health problems as they arise during the school day
  • to be a resource and advocate for Canyon Creek families

To help me achieve these goals, please keep me updated if there are any changes regarding your child's health. Also, please keep the office updated with changes of phone numbers or emergency contacts.

I will be using this web page to offer health tips throughout the year. If there is any specific topic you would like me to cover please let me know by clicking on the box at the left - "Contact Mrs. Z."
