You can run this small script a few times to see that the file does not get
deleted

hg

import shelve


class Grades:
    def __init__(self):
        self.GRADES = 'GRADES'
        self.m_gdb = shelve.open('MYGRADES.dat')

        try:
            self.m_grades = self.m_gdb[self.GRADES]
        except:
            self.m_grades = []
            self.m_gdb[self.GRADES] = self.m_grades

        self.m_gdb.close()

    def Add(self, p_grade):
        self.m_gdb = shelve.open('MYGRADES.dat')
        self.m_grades.append(p_grade)
        self.m_gdb[self.GRADES] = self.m_grades
        self.m_gdb.close()

    def Grades(self):
