English term or phrase: Welcome to class
I am teaching 6th grade social studies and would like to create a bulletin board welcoming students to class in as many languages as possible.
Amy Kennedy
Benvenuti a lezione!
Explanation:
Classroom is the place where classes take place, so if you mean to welcome students to your lessons, "benvenuti a lezione" sounds better.

Hope this helps

Benvenuti nella nostra classe


Explanation:
i.e., "Welcome to our class", which in Italian sounds somewhat warmer than just "Benvenuti in classe" (Welcome to class)

un caloroso benvenuto a tutti


Explanation:
I would skip "to class" you would not say in in conversation (because both speaker and listener are in the same place and the reference to the class or the course would be superfluous). I would say the same is true for a bulletin board which possibly hangs outside or inside your classroom.

In Italian you would just say "welcome" and I have added "caloroso" (heartfelt, warm) "a tutti" "to all" to round off the sentence.

regards
