PFHS Mission Statement
I love exploring Virginia, this is at Breaks Interstate Park.
  • Welcome to Earth Science, the study of the natural systems that govern our planet! My name is Amelia Zarate, I have a B.S. in Natural Resource Management from Colorado State University and am working on my Masters of Education at Regent University.

    Your success as a student is my priority, so if you ever need any extra help please make an appointment to meet during my office hours an hour before school or during my planning blocks.

    If you miss a day and want the notes or handouts, or if you know that you will be missing school one day, I post the guided notes, the Powerpoints, and all assignments on Google classroom. Additionally, you can see what assignments we've had and what's coming up by looking into Phoenix (ParentVue and StudentVue).

    Other questions? Generally, the best way to reach me outside of class is by email:, I will make every effort to respond within one school day.
