For 90 years, Beauvoir’s mission has been to provide an extraordinary early childhood education that fosters a lifelong passion for learning by embracing the curiosity and creativity of childhood. Our celebration weekend honored past and present leadership, faculty, staff, families, friends, and of course, our students and alumni with events for all! From our Thursday evening reception at Washington National Cathedral to Friday’s Anniversary Chapel—featuring a new hymn composed for Beauvoir by Canon Michael McCarthy—and the opening of the Class of 2000 Time Capsule to Saturday afternoon’s Fall Fest, the Beauvoir community celebrated traditions and memories, both old and new. On this page, we invite you to enjoy a glimpse into the festivities.
See photos from the 90th Birthday Cocktail Reception, the 90th Anniversary Chapel, the Time Capsule opening, and Fall Fest!
Watch as members of the Class of 2000 open the Time Capsule and enjoy a look at life at Beauvoir 23 years ago. While the opening was delayed due to the pandemic, the 90th Celebration weekend drew many alumni and proved to be excellent timing for opening the capsule!
With guests including former heads of school Polly Morleand and Paula Carreiro, past Beauvoir chaplains the Rev. Claudia Gould Tielking and the Rev. Michael Barbaro; second grade students’ reflections on thankfulness; and a homily by the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, please enjoy this recording of the 90th Anniversary Chapel.
