School changes "Easter eggs" to "Spring spheres": MyFoxHOUSTON.com

SEATTLE, April 14 (UPI) -- A Seattle teenager said she was told while volunteering at an elementary school to refer to her Easter egg treats as "spring spheres."

The 16-year-old private school student, who asked to be identified only as Jessica, said she was volunteering at a public school, which she declined to identify, and prepared plastic eggs filled with treats for a third-grade class, MyNorthwest.com -- KIRO Radio & TV, Seattle, reported Wednesday.

Jessica said she was concerned about the "abstract behavior rules" at the school so she checked with a teacher before bringing the eggs to the class.

"I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay," Jessica explained. "She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat 'spring spheres.' I couldn't call them Easter eggs."

The teenager said she presented the "spring spheres" to the class, but the students were not fooled.

"When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, 'Oh look, spring spheres' and all the kids were like 'Wow, Easter eggs.' So they knew," Jessica said.
