A lot of people did not have a good high school experience, but we can all agree that elementary school was awesome.

I actually loved going to school every day. Sure, I occasionally faked sickness because I did not finish my homework the night before or I just wanted to stay home and play with a new toy, but that didn’t mean I did not enjoy the days that I spent at school.

From recess and gym class to pizza day and Scholastic Book Club, there were so many rad things beside learning that got you pumped about going to school. Yes, it did look like we played more than we actually worked, but I turned out pretty great, so clearly, the system worked.

Here are 23 photos that will transport you back to your elementary school days:
