A Seattle school renamed Easter eggs "Spring Spheres," in an effort to make the eggs non-religious symbols. A teen who volunteered at the school told MyNorthwest.com, "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." Seattle Public Schools spokesperson Teresa Wippel said in a Seattle PI blog that the school board stated that they have a Religion and Religious Accommodation' policy which makes a point not to promote any "religious belief or non-belief."
