One Book Blitz is a county-wide initiative across all K-5 schools in Blount County, Alcoa, and Maryville. Fostering a joy of reading is the main purpose of One Book Blitz as Alcoa City School goes all in on creating an environment revolving around Mr. Popper's Penguins.

On this website, you will find several resources for connecting with this excellent annual activity.

AES Students and Penguins would like to say a big "THANK YOU" to all of the parents, volunteers and staff for making our 2019 OBB closing activities a huge success!
