    Unfortunately, it seems that there is no function or argument that can be used yet to the Calculations DateString() function to make it display the full name of the Day of date field. Similar to what was suggested on this thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/386002

    It seems that the only way to achieve this at this time is by using the form's full source code and inject custom javascript function that will calculate Date field's equivalent Day Name.

    You can read such script on this article or here.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need more help.
