Extract Day of the Week

Below is how I would extract the hour properly from a Datetime attribute via Generate Attributes.

date_get([Signup Date], DATE_UNIT_HOUR)
I want to extract the day of the week.  For example, Monday, or Friday.  Is this possible?

I could easily do this via Execute python, but that adds a layer of complexity, especially in a teaching context.
