A Virginia school built in the early 1900s was destroyed by fire in January 2014, according to a report from WTVR in Richmond, Va.
Colonial Beach Elementary school teachers created a YouTube video, in hopes they can get talk-show host Ellen to help them build a new school.
The school went up in flames on January 5, WTVR reports. Damage from an earthquake had already pushed students into trailers situated on the campus.
School board member Michelle Payne posted that the elementary school lost a significant amount of supplies stored in the building.
“What I love about our school is we are such a big family, we care about each other and help out each other all the time,” teacher Kim Fischer says in the video.
Teachers hope to get this video shared enough times to get Ellen’s attention.
