Need help with acceptable use of School Factory logo

I don't want to use mis-use the school factory logo.   Are we allowed to use it in printed flyers or other event promotions.

For example, see the attached small engine repair (proof of concept / early draft) promotion.

Is the school factory name/logo something I should be leaving off of these types of things?

Facebook Page Created

The Spring City Launchpad facebook page has now been created. I believe once you have "liked" the page I am able to make you an admin and therefore you will be able to edit as you wish. Until then, if there are any photos and/or information you would like me to include on the page, please let me know!
