It's fairly common for rim brakes to squeal with brand new rims/brake pads or when the rims are wet. If they haven't quieted down after a few rides then perhaps the pads need to be 'toed-in' (angled slightly). If that doesn't help then you could try changing the pads to better ones, like 'Kool-stop'. Also, some brakes just squeak no matter what you do with them and the only solution there is to replace them.
Have a look at this thread:
there are many good tips there.
