I live in the tract surrounding this school and am curious:  Why did you remove the "blaze" from the face of the mascot?  One of the traits of a "blazer" is a white marking ( often a stripe) down the face.  Otherwise, they may have white on the lower legs (which you don't show because you only have the head for your logo.)  It has bothered me ever since you repainted the logo.  Why leave off the "blaze"?
