I think I need to say something - Facebook mom strikes again

There is a mom on our school's facebook page.  She is very sweet, on the PTA board, and is really really involved.  The biggest problem is that she posts things for parents on the page but writes it as if she is 13 years old texting her buddies. 

Here is her latest post:

My daughter XXXX  had a great day 2day, she told me she had a great day 2dy. she likes her teacher, and she's glad 2 see all of her friends! I like 2 welkom Mrs. XXX back 2 school, she's a very good teacher and my daughter who had her 4 a kindergarten teacher, is so happy 2 see her teacher bak, so welkom bak Mrs. XXX!:)

I've known her for a couple of years.  We are not close but we see and talk to each other often at events.  Should I say something or should I tell one of the other board members so they can talk to her.  I just don't think she understands the unprofessionalism of it....especially in a place that is for school.

Does she have a disability that makes her like that or is she doing it to be cool? I would have someone on the board tell her.

No disability that i'm aware of.  I don't know how much education she has received but I think she posts like this to her friends all the time.

 I would have to say something either to her or the PTA board.  It is very unprofessional looking and honestly sad that a mom actually types like that.

 I agree with Steel on this one. Just be as nice as possible.

I would just ignore and let everyone else have their own opinions on this mom.

If she's writing this as a page administrator (sp?) I would say something. Looks bad for the school. If she's just commenting on the page, I'd be annoyed as hell, but I probably wouldn't say anything.

I'm not sure if she is one of the admins or not (how do I check??).  She is on the PTA board and that is the place where PTA posts their reminders, events, etc.

 You could try jokingly mentioning it to her or some of the other PTA members and see what their reactions are.
