(PHILLY) — Samantha Pawlucy returned to school this morning, following a rally in her support, days after she received a highly publicized classroom dressing down for wearing a Romney/Ryan T-shirt.

Students this morning were also expected to be read a letter from the teacher involved expressing regret for the aftermath of what she called “a light and humorous remark.”

The demonstration began outside Port Richmond’s Charles Carroll High about 7:45 a.m. with the singing of the national anthem. Pawlucy then took part in the reading of the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence and the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Shouts of “Go, Sam!” and “You’re great, Sam!” followed a group recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.
