    DHHS School Fight Song - "Thor’s Revenge"

    Our home is roaring as the lighting strikes!
    Thor’s hammer hits with thundering sights.
    Our honor lies within the skies
    As the pounding thunder roars!
    The crash is heard both loud and clear!
    We beat the rest as they shake with fear!
    What is seen is our victory,
    As the pounding thunder roars!
