New Wave Swim School

This year I am trying to sign up students online using google Docs.. (I'm better at answering emails than answering machines.) Look at the session that you are interested in and type in their name and if there is no level posted you can put whatever level you would like.  The level is full, if all 5 or 6 spots have names on them.    The cost is still $35 this year.  Thanks for your help in signing up your children.
