Multiple DHCP scopes on 3560 switch

Hi experts,

I don't have a 3560 to test this on, so I figured I'd ask first.
Is it possible to create multiple DHCP pools on a 3560 switch or can I only create 1? For example, If I have 3 VLANS, can I create 3 separate pools and have the IIP Helper addresses pointing to each of the VLANS?

Can I create 3 scopes?

VLAN 100 is:
VLAN 200 is:
VLAN 300 is:

The 3560 will have ports that exists on either of those 3 vlans.
Would I be able to make 3 scopes and have the IP Helper address point to the VLAN interface?

int VLAN 100
IP helper address

int VLAN 200
IP helper address

int VLAN 300
IP helper address
