    Below is what I call the double ring seal that refelcts our academic side. Created January 2021 by Jefre Hargroder. The top seal is a "plain" version of the seal. It has the blue halo reflecting our school colors of blue and white on the edge of the inner ring, a flat star above the left laurel that represents the state of Texas, an open book above the right laurel and an owl perched on top of the "B." The scond seal down has the blue halo on the inner ring, which reflects our main school colors of blue and white, a shaded or textured star representing the state of Texas, a starburst behind the "B," that represents the beginning of student learning and how what we do now will always guide students in the future. The next is the open book, followed by the wise owl perched atop the "B" to show learning will take them to heights never imagined. The third seal is different only from the last in the the inner color is gold instead of blue.

    Below is a black & white variation of the seal that instead of using a Native American Indian as the logo we instead opted for simple "B" with three feathers hanging off the top the "B" serif and cradled by two laurel stems.

    Belluaire U text on blue field

    Bellaire U 01. This was designed orginally for desktops for the school. Bellaire U represents the new direction that B.E.S. is heading idealogically as we focus students on thinking about the future and the possibilities therein, such as going to college. It is never too early to inspire our children to think of their future and think big.

    B over 2 branches with dreamcatcher and medicine wheel

    This is a triple circle design. The main circle is the Bellaire seal with two smaller circles to the right side. The top smaller circle is a dreamcatcher with two feathers hanging off the right side. The lower smaller circle to the right of the seal is a medicine wheel that reprents direction, the winds and characterizations that embody the ideals what it means to be part of social circle of peoples and these are represented by the color segments within the circle. The Bellaire seal consists of a capital B that sits in the inner conical nestled on top of olive branches with field of blue that graduates to white in the center. and Laural Branches prominent and Medicine wheel and dreamcatcher.

    At this point in my designs I am starting to pull away from using typical stereotypes like the native North American profile design I had previously used. The idea is to honor the First Nation Peoples of North America.
