There's yet another inspiring story this weekend out of the tornado-ravaged town of West Liberty.

School district employees, families and even a group from Virginia are part of an ongoing effort to get kids back to class.

The volunteers are working around the clock to transform an old factory into a temporary elementary school.

Donated books, desks and supplies are making a big difference.

And an anonymous, cardboard sign is also inspiring volunteers at the 'Miracle on the Hill'.

The school will hold an open house for families on Sunday.

And students will head to their new classrooms on Monday.
